It feels as though I was sucker punched.
Walked into an alley and beat up with no knowledge or reason
I did not vote for that man
I do not support his agenda (as vague as it is)
I do not tolerate hate, xenophobia, or misogyny
I do not think fear is the way to motivate people
I want to be clear
this is NOT who I am,
nor does this man and his clan of huntsmen
represent anything I stand for.
He is not what so many of my immigrant forefamily
came seeking in America.
I am ashamed and embarrassed
not only in this but myself for not seeing
just how racist and sexist this country really is!
I am a dreamer and believer
and it just walked right past my sparkling dreamer eyes

I woke up this morning feeling emotional, more than I expected.
I mailed our ballots in two weeks ago
I called my mother weeping
I am now on pins and needles
So much is at stake
So much worry
I spoke out when I saw women friends claiming to not want to vote
I learned who really harbors hate for other people
I learned what is important to me
I voted, I voted for myself but mostly for my niece and nephews future
I voted for my and any other woman's reproductive rights
I voted for my LGBTQ friends
I voted for my earth
I am voting for a change
I am a nasty woman, who is grabbing back her pussy and playing her woman card!
