Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us.

Be tired. Be mad. Be honest & concerned. But be not afraid. Rest up. Be safe. Come together. Construct. Know your surroundings. Be creative.

Some didn’t like Bush. Some didn’t like Obama. But this is different. Forget dislike. Many are genuinely fearful now. This is new.

After the wonderful Obamas it is going to be horrifying to see that awful family in the White House. It’s like a John Waters movie. https://t.co/9sUjQcw8jV
