When The Unthinkable Happens

By Charlotte Robinson, November 09, 2016
Reset everything that you thought would happen if Hillary Clinton won. We all knew there was a possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidency. It’s going to take some time to see what this means for our community. Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund stated, “Millions of people here & around the world will be shocked, disappointed & frankly frightened by the election of Donald Trump. His remarks over the course of the campaign including his sexist, racist & xenophobic comments, as well as his mocking of people with disabilities & his dehumanization of Muslims leave many of us deeply disturbed. Make no mistake about it, this will also give us a roadmap for fair-minded, moral, compassionate people to come together like never before & fight. It will take longer, it will be harder, but rest assured that united & working in partnership with people of good conscience, we will get there.” Last night Chad Griffin, HRC President stated, “Throughout our nation’s history, we’ve faced devastating setbacks in our pursuit of a more perfect union. But even in the darkest of moments, Americans have summoned the courage & persistence to fight on. The results of tonight’s presidential election require us to meet tomorrow with the same resolve & determination.” So have a good cry, dust yourself off & reset your thoughts & move forward with strength & determination to reach our goal of full equality for everyone.
