The Day After #imwithher

It’s 5am and I have never felt so far away as I did yesterday and this morning. There is a new world order today.

Sadness is not an acceptable reaction when friends of color, women and gay friends on Facebook post “America now I know you hate me.” To those friends, I love you always. I have your back.

Action is required. As Seth Godin wrote Resilience is required:

“When we’re sure it’s not going to work, when we can’t figure out where to turn, when we don’t know what to do next…Sometimes, our ability to do the best we can in small ways is enough to start moving forward. And when it doesn’t work, we try something else. Enough small things by enough people coalesce into the next big thing.”

Then there is Pantsuit Nation on Facebook which is moving to the Daughters of Athena. The plan is to act  – run for office, find candidates to support and elect locally and nationally.

And I know you didn’t miss President Obama’s words of encouragement. The epitome of “when they go low we go high.”

Today I will show resolve, resilience and move forward. Pull myself up and get involved.  I am going to do whatever I can here through Democrats Abroad worldwide and Victoria cause that’s what I can do from here. I won’t live in the bubble of expat life. I am an American good, bad and ugly.
