I'm Sorry

by Mike Shea on 9 November 2016

Woke up at 2:30 am today just in time to see the results. A man who bragged about sexual assault; a man who emboldens white supremacy; a man who so clearly cares nothing for the country or anything else other than himself; a man who spews hate with nearly every speech he gave; just became president of the United States. We have fallen so far. I feel lost. I feel hopeless. I feel sick. I feel ashamed. I feel scared. And I'm a straight white man. I can't imagine how others feel right now. I'm sorry.
