It is over…the dream and aspirations of the 2016 elections is now behind us, at least according to the process. Donald Trump won fair and square, the people spoke, or better saying “the people who came out to vote spoke” and although the country is divided at this moment since emotions and fear are flying high, there is really nothing “effective” to do except to wait and expect that Mr. Trump “the President” would be different than Mr. Trump “the candidate”. I rather wait to see what he is going to do instead of reacting before….but that’s ME! More anger doesn’t solve anything, even though the rhetoric of this campaign was so vile…otherwise we are behaving just like “they” said they would if Trump lost. I am not being naive, I am just patient and practical….
As my candidate Hillary Clinton said on her concession speech, ” we must accept this result and look into the future, Donald Trump is going to be our President, we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead…”.¬† I love politics, I love democracy…and although this was an exhausting campaign, and I followed it since¬†day one, I am so glad we can move on now … somehow, I guess … and I hope.

God Bless the United States of America.
