#notmypresident This will be a very hard transition from Obama - who has such grace and utmost class, sterling character, high intelligence, and dignity to a lying hypercritical tv reality star who has limited vocabulary and no knowledge of politics. I am beyond baffled at this point to even try t...

Finding out that Donald Trump would be USA’s 45th president hit me hard. I was shocked and confused and a little surprised. I was confused as to why people had voted for him in the first place, i felt as if I was missing the big picture. The truth is that the big picture had always been here, racist s...

People shame their fellow neighbors for voting third party when they themselves voted for Clinton as opposed to Sanders in the Democratic Primaries. At this point I have lost all faith in the Democratic party and the values it “stands” for coming out of this election with the absurd reaction that...

After a particularly stressing election season, we’ve finally reached the end of the road. And I don’t just mean in terms of the election. I mean mentally... *pauses and enters in a fit of rage and tears while rolling around on the floor screaming “WHY COULDN’T IT HAVE BEEN SANDERS AND RUBIO!...

Around the time of the election, I was talking with some people who hated both candidates equally, but for whatever reason they decided they would rather see Trump in office than Hillary. Their reasons were weak, and not well backed up, claiming he has better policies, and he would save our country f...

Dear United States of America, The 45th President of the United States is Donald Trump, yet Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Trump only won because of an outdated system that he himself once condemned. I hope we will get rid of the Electoral College soon. When I woke up on November 9th my te...

What movement? The movement that started hundreds of years ago. The movement that we are all a part of. The movement where we march through our streets and walk out of school. The movement where we look up to our leaders from the Selma to Montgomery march, from Freedom Summer, from the Children’s...

To minorities in America, It is honestly so terrifying to know that the country you live in is run by nothing but hate and misogyny. To know that the only person that can truly benefit is a straight white male. The morning after everything happened I woke up in tears, not only in fear for myself...

I am not terrified; I am angry. I am the daughter of first generation immigrants, and although they aren’t here illegally, they came from the Middle East and have arabic sounding last names. They are muslim people of color, and they will be persecuted and harassed for the next four years by stranger...

Dear Obamas, Thank you. Thank you all for what you’ve accomplished in your eight years as first family. Thank you Sasha and Malia Obama for letting me grow up with you. Age-wise I’m right in between you two, and it was nice to have someone I could relate to in the White House. Thank you for be...

To the girl who is being silenced, I know you’re scared. But please don’t disappear. Don’t let him define you. Your voice matters. I don't want you to imagine a future where you didn't feel safe to be you. Where you don't feel safe to be a Muslim, because your religion that preaches tolerance ...

Dear Student Body, Due to the recent election results, I know how you all must feel. Most of you are baffled by how our country can even consider such an idiotic bigot for president. Some of you must be scared by the fact that your new president might change your lives for the worse. But I have one...
