My heart is broken but I am inspired by the grace, dignity and humanity Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama exemplified on this day after the long, contentious election of 2016. This is a painful loss for a great many of us, my self included but it is time for us all to do our very best to come together. We have all, at some point in our lives had to deal with disappointment, loss and sorrow. Once the shock sets in and we accept the outcome we rise up. It is who we are. It is how we are made.
I was proud to vote for our first African American President, Barack Obama for both of his terms. He has, in my opinion lead our country with great intelligence, wisdom and elegance. He and his beautiful wife, Michelle will be greatly missed.
