November 9, 2016

Today, Wednesday November 9th in the year of our lord, 2016 is the day on which I have been forced to come to the conclusion that 'Right' does not triumph over 'Wrong'; that intelligence does not outweigh ignorance and that qualifications and dedication can be over-shadowed and undercut by the politically and morally corrupt.

There are no mood altering substances, legal, illegal or medical available to me that could change the way that I feel about the outcome of our Presidential Election -- maybe if, I shut my eyes, stuck my fingers in my ears, hummed loudly and shook my head from side to side -- for the next four years, it will all go away.

Yes, the Earth still travels in the same orbit around the Sun but, "Life" as we know it is about to change; intelligent human-kind shuttered upon hearing the news of the outcome of the United States of America's Presidential election.

We are a deeply divided nation.
