There are a few things I don’t openly discuss. Those would be religion, politics, sex and salary. As it should be.
However, as I sit and watch the election results come in, while not surprised I am truly surprised at how close the race is. I don’t believe all Republicans are racist but the ugly that has seeped from the underbelly of this nation has me sad. Very sad.
While I have customarily given people the benefit of the doubt and respected their opinions and their right to vote on what is best for them, I’m sure it will be a very long time before I am able to not wonder if my neighbors and those that teach my kids and wave at me at my mailbox are undercover racists. I hate living like this but truth be told, I may not remember a name but I never forget a face, or a yard sign, or a hat.
See you tomorrow…..cause NaBloPoMo
