Dear The 47
Today is sad. Today is terrifying. Today is shocking.
Today is real.
I woke up this morning to ‘President Trump’ pasted everywhere. I couldn’t escape it on twitter, I couldn’t escape it on Facebook, I couldn’t escape it on Instagram nor could I escape it in my own home or even my university lecture.
Today is a scary day. It marks the day the rest of the world realised the majority of the U.S. do not value members of their society.
They do not value ethnic races, cultural differences, gender differences, physical abilities, sexuality differences. They do not value humanity.
I want to let each and every one of you who are scared and hurt that you are not alone. You may not have other American citizens on your side but you have me. You have most of the UK and most of the world.
WE are the majority.
Trump may pollute the heads of your fellow Americans. He may pollute his children. He has even convinced himself that his belief systems and actions are fully acceptable and just but we know better. We can use our knowledge, our experiences to help make the world a better and more righteous place. Raise your children to know that they are loved, they are accepted and they are amazing. Help them become strong and help them lead. Teach them the difference between right and wrong so that they will not make the same mistakes the world is making. Teach your friends, your family, your neighbours and strangers. Teach the world that one man cannot break down everything that is good within the U.S. and in the world.
I understand you are scared. Here in the UK we are also terrified but channel that anger into something positive. Violence, war and negativity is not the right answer although your new President may disagree.
EQUALITY is important.
You have my support.
