I did not think I lived in a country or a time where this election outcome was possible. As a Jew, as a woman, as a person with more gay friends than straight ones, as a HUMAN. I'm disheartened and disgusted by the state of affairs in America. But, at the same time, I have to believe we can come through this and stay strong in the face of adversity. I leave you with one of my favorite quotes. Please read the ever poignant words of Anne Frank -- who, more than ever, it seems, really knew how to express what many of us are feeling today.
"In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too. I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too shall end, and that peace and tranquility will return again."
