I wrote this on November 10, 2016:

“America we will survive. We will not just survive, but we will endure and tethered to this ring of disappointment and heartbreak we will raise ourselves like that blinded giant of the old book and stand between the pillars of despair and despotism. A Samson no longer blinded by the fears and hatreds of any philistines…no longer weakened by our lesser angels but strengthened by the cold air of awakening. We must push past the hurt of our stunned souls to recognize our duty to our future and our promise to our past. We will endure and we will prevail. The sting of these missteps are not our final destiny.”
