I’m not sure what to write.
I thought about this day, for about four years now.
Like alot of people out there, I’m disappointed by the results, even though the final tally hasn’t been made as of yet. When words fail, sometimes images can capture the moment.

UPDATE – Monday, November 9, 2020.
Okay, so Joe Biden has been declared a winner. That is good news, to be certain. I know I am not alone in my sense of relief that a clear majority of the public voted him in. But the fact remains, that over 70 million voted for DJT. I’m going to try to make a conscious effort to stop using his name, because it is a name that has permeated the atmosphere, sucking up all of it’s oxygen in its wake. 70 million voted for an obese, thrice-divorced, multiple bankruptcy con artist. A guy who doesn’t pay taxes. A guy who ran a fake charity. A fake university. The list goes on. And on. And on.
The question remains – why did they?
Is it because he ran on a platform of anti-abortion?
Of building a 5th Century wall to keep out fictitious roving bands of rapists and murderers?
Is it because he didn’t care about Black Lives?
Is it because he wasn’t going to take away the guns?
Was it because he didn’t believe in science?
In the military?
In intelligence services?
In climate change?
I’m not sure. But I hope they figure out why. Because that country, nor any other, can never afford to have another DJT. Ever Again.
The climate emergency dictates that time is running out.
Let us hope for brighter days ahead. For more action that ensures a safe world for all.
