Many friends and relatives, both online and in real life, are upset, stunned, ashamed, worried, etc. about the results of yesterday's election. Their reactions are extreme in some cases.
One loved one exclaimed, "Don't say to me to relax, take a deep breath, everyone's gonna be alright...":
But we do need to relax; we do need to breathe. However we should not be complacent and assume that everything will work out. We must work hard to tip the scales back toward love and compassion. Treat all humanity with respect and honor. All life is precious.
As an artist / engineer, I can do this. I think you can, too. A difficult challenge has been set before us, and we will "up our game" to meet and exceed this challenge. Be positive. Be a beacon of light and hope. Only then will everything be alright.
Peace and love to you all!
