Last night we went to bed and grimly discussed the outcome of the American election. Like most we were stunned at the results leading to Trumps landslide victory.
Waking up it’s almost like waking up from a nightmare and then that gutting feeling when you realise it’s actually still very real. We can only hope that this mans time in office is brief and that tensions subside within the country. The one thing this election has shown is that Americans aren’t happy with the system, and there is still a huge racial and economical divide across the nation.
I feel for the Americans who’s peace, inclusivity, and a safe place to call home may be in peril.
To learn more about what the future may hold for the divided country, you can read a piece the BBC published today listing 24 things Trump believes. It’s not a fun read.
In the mean time, how did you think the elections were going to turn out? Do you think Trump can bring anything positive to the nation?
Note on the photo: This gigantic jumping spider greeted me yesterday in our garden. I’ve not seen one this size since I spotted a similar species in East Perth. He was about 2.5 inches long.
