But this post isn't about politics, really. I try not to be too loud about my own personal views on such things, since I know that not all of my readers share those views, and I respect everyone's right to hold their own opinions.
This post is to address my own depression on this day, in part because I know that many of the folks I'm friends with are also feeling sad, angry, and fearful. None of which are helpful, in the long run.
So I'm going to stay off of social media today, avoid the news, and remind myself (while working, and then later, writing and probably drinking wine) that what we think is the end of the world rarely is. I am going to do my best to stay positive in the face of a lot of negativity. I'm going to try to do as President Obama urged in his last press conference, and remain hopeful.
It may be the end of the world as we know it, but I think we'll be fine.
Big love to you all.
