Cheers Team Tiny Peppers it’s Nano Poblano Day 9.  I have been on such a roll this year so far with Nano Poblano, but today I am so depressed I find myself without words. I couldn’t even write a senryu.  I’m worried for our country.  I’m worried for myself. I’m worried for my marriage, my rights (so hard fought for). I keep trying to find the silver lining, the sparkling glimmer of hope, but all is dark. I will try again tomorrow to create.  If I am unable I may have to bow out.  I am hurt to the core that our country could elect a Racist, misogynistic,  bigoted, sexist, hateful narcissist who brags about assaulting women; who incites violence and threatens to use his new power in oval to silence and seek retribution against his enemies.  So un-presidential. I keep seeing posts about uniting and moving forward. I cannot possibly respect or unite with anyone who would support a candidate such as Trump and everything he represents. I seriously messaged my manager this morning and told her I couldn’t come to work because I had been stricken with Trumpitis, that I had uncontrollable diarrhea and vomiting that could last 4-8 years.  I went in, but it was so hard to work today.  I don’t want to go tomorrow either, what’s the point if everything I am working for is going in the crapper?  Crestfallen 😦

    1. He has the power now. Narcissistic people don’t feel the need to prove anything. His VP is worse than he is so getting rid of him through impeachment, or criminal wrongdoing would not help the situation. We just have to hope that life does not become unbearable in the next 4-8 years. There have already been suicides in our trans communities because they know they are already marginalized and with Trump as president they have no hope.

    Yes it is sickening. I was shocked to wake up to this news. We are stuck for 4 years because it’s out of our control. I hope he doesn’t take away our LGBT rights and social security and deport hard working families leaving their American born kids parentheses just to name a few things.

  2. I think it is going to be hard for everybody, I find the world extremely confusing with all of the choices that are being made right now, particularly people wanting change so bad that they would allow these things to happen. I do think we need to be extremely careful in the coming days and more compassionate than ever in order to inspire those who are feeling down. It’s not like we have a choice any more, all we can do is continue to fight for our rights and see where tomorrow takes us.
