As I See It
No matter the outcome, we will survive the election
It is all over now, but the voting. It is finally election day, when millions of people will cast their ballots for President. It has been a long, and disappointing campaign between two people most people don’t like very much. Some suggest our choices in this election are the worst ever. Most of us will just be glad it is over. No more attack ads, no more robo-calls. Some predict if their candidate doesn’t win today’s election, it will mark the apocalypse. America cannot survive a Clinton or Trump presidency, according to doom-sayers in each party. But let’s not forget that no matter the outcome of today’s election, no matter who our next President will be, this is still America, still the greatest country in the world. The world will not come to an end following the counting of the votes. We are a resilient nation, and we will persevere regardless of whether your candidate wins. Let’s hope that no matter the winner, our next President will be treated with respect by the American people, regardless of who they voted for. We don’t need to agree with them on every issue, but we do need to respect the office of the Presidency, and remember that we will survive the next four years.
