I know I’m writing this last minute in the season but I just can’t keep my mind from endlessly spinning around this unavoidable topic. It plagues me on social media, traditional media, and even the people I see day to day. I can’t get away from it, but thanks goodness I am trained at holding my tongue. I’ve avoided publicly voicing my opinions because no one wants to hear another person’s opinions unless they align with theirs. We like to think we’re open-minded but more often than not we tend to be quite close-minded indeed, myself included. Anyway, I decided to write a little about what my cyclic thoughts have been pondering. This by no means encapsulates all of my thoughts or opinions but it’s a start and there is just something surprisingly therapeutic about voicing your thoughts…well, it’s therapeutic until some rogue who disagrees explodes in your face. I’m really hoping that doesn’t happen, but if it does, well, I’m sorry you have nothing better to do than spit on your neighbor.
What the heck do I know? Maybe very little. Maybe nothing at all. All I know is that I’m a 22-year old “legally blind” biracial woman living in a broken world who is afraid to give up but is also very tired of hoping that anything will truly change. This is just a few of my unasked for thoughts on the United States of America’s presidential election of 2016. Read at your own risk 😉
