Today’s election is more than a local election and this post is more than a local post. It has to be.
I saw a meme circulating yesterday to the effect that, no matter which Presidential candidate wins, the poster will get up tomorrow and lead a peaceful and happy life. I’m guessing it was well meaning. Perhaps it was meant to be brave in the face of possible chaos in the aftermath of Election Day.
It was hard for me to swallow.
In this election the choices are clearly defined. If you can look at them and think you’ll be fine either way, then you have a privilege that many Americans do not. If you, or people you care about, are:
- Have pre-existing conditions
- Black Americans
