So… there’s that thing….

I am sitting with my husband watching the results for the general election come in for America as we voted for a new person to be President of the United States.

To say it’s a nail biter is the understatement of the year.

I told my husband it would come down to this when he left early this morning for work and he told me one person would win by 11p.m.

It’s 11:19 pm and folks on either side are buying their nails down the nub.

The news is showing people staring at Jumbotrons looking stunned.

My son called sounding like he is in total disbelief.

Here’s the thing- the lesson for ALL of us is to truly hear what is being said and to stop being tone deaf. People were ridiculed for feeling the way they did and when one feels unheard, they become Determined to teach a lesson.

Even if it ends up costing them long term. 

It’s human nature.
We have to do better listening and learning. Our children and the world are all watching. 

Dueces and mad love
