I’ve heard this from several friends already.
Actually, no I don’t know how you felt four years ago.
Four years ago, when “my guy” won, I was able to “celebrate” with exactly one friend and two family members. I had a professor cancel a seminar that only met one day a week because she was too upset to teach and I had a close friend who lived on my hall tell me that she couldn’t handle looking at me.
Fours years ago, when “my guy” won, the media, my friends, and my family hated him with such a passion and depth that I honestly thought it bordered on unpatriotic.
Today, I feel alone.
I don’t have the support of the media and I don’t have the support of all my friends and family (although certainly some). I attended a meeting that concluded with “everything’s so much brighter today,” etc. I am in an extreme minority geographically and demographically simply because I’m a 25-year old Republican woman living in NYC.
I also don’t abhor the man elected, have faith that our nation is not committed to a complete leftwing agenda, and, unlike many of my Facebook friends, was always proud to be an American.
So, no, I don’t know how you felt four years ago.
