I think a lot of you are scared, angry, just plain exhausted. And I don’t want to contribute to those feelings or try to act like I understand them. I am privileged. I do not have to worry about the economic or social impact of this election to the extent that so many people have to.
I want to try to understand how everyone is feeling right now. The motivations behind voter choice. I value the validity of perspective. I value that people are making their voices heard. However, I think some voices are shouting while others are being stifled. That is not okay to me. It is not okay that assumptions are being made, and connections are being cut. Right now we need empathy.
Here is a six minute podcast to get the conversation flowing. Let’s start talking.
Speak to you soon. Stay positive.
