I only hope that what ever changes that come to us now will be good; but…fear they won't be.

I think it sucks that we are AFRAID of this election. We should not be afraid of our leaders, they should be afraid of us. We are the power...we should live like it.

Yes, the winds of change are coming and they may very well be a storm. One thing we have done as a family is get in tight with our close friends and ban together to watch eachother's backs. We are preparing for the worst, hoping for the best and will be happy for someplace in-between.

The mood of the nation tonight will tell us much. The next few days are curcial, even before the inaguration of our next comander in chief. We all have to be smart and watch carefully with wary eyes. Be prepared to take care of yourself with little outside help. Be ready for even harder times before they get better. If we keep these things in mind, then when they don't happen, we can all heave a sigh of relief. But if things get nutty, it is better if you are ready to stand up for yourself and your loved ones, and fight. I don't mean like a war, but take responsibility for ourselves and do for ourselves. The less dependant we are on what they do "for us" the less power they have "over us".

That is why I wish sometimes we at DC were actually in a room, face to face. What a force we would be to reckon with. We will one day. We will be the voice that is heard by Washington. We should be empowered by our numbers to make a difference.

I'll only be scared if the other guy wins. It causes me pain to think that we could have more of the same of what has left me feeling embarrassed to be American. I wish I could say I feel differently, but this country has been driven into the ground.
