These five people nailed it. All of it. If you’re angry or afraid or lashing out with hate – “Stop. Breathe. Love.” And consume these five things before you keep going on that destructive path.
1 – Jonathan Pie’s rant is epic. We need discussion, not safe spaces.
2 – Kid President’s “How to Disagree” is a brilliant perspective on how to have civil discourse
“Stop. Breathe. Love.”
3 – Mike Rowe’s response to the election
“I know people are freaked out, Carol. I get it. I’m worried too. But not because of who we elected. We’ve survived 44 Presidents, and we’ll survive this one too. I’m worried because millions of people now seem to believe that Trump supporters are racist, xenophobic, and uneducated misogynists. I’m worried because despising our candidates publicly is very different than despising the people who vote for them.”
4 – Trent Lapinksi’s commentary: “Dear Democrats”
“At the end of the day, this is an opportunity to learn and grow and consider another world view. This is a wakeup call to get out of safe spaces, politically correct thinking, shatter echo chambers, and challenge yourself to consider the other side of the fence. This is an opportunity to reach out and truly learn to understand each other.”
5 – Chad Felix Greene’s post to calm fears of the LGBTQ community
“Not every event has to be the end of the world and remember, we have a representative government. The less power you assign at the highest levels the less you, as an individual, have to worry about someone abusing that power. Small government means more direct influence on said government by you.”
