I have been trying to explain to friends, family, and others why I, a middle-aged, middle-class white woman, am afraid of what the next four years holds now that Donald Trump is our President Elect. I keep reading comments like, “we will have to wait and see what happens,” or “we will all be okay.” Sorry – screw that. I will not sit back and just wait and see what happens. Because of Donald Trump, things are already happening that are dangerous. Things have already been proposed that will impact the quality of life and potentially harm the lives of those that I love.
My fear has nothing to do with his crass language. I’m not afraid for myself. I’m afraid for my children, Tim and The Girl in particular.
