I wasn’t planning on posting this. I actually wasn’t planning on writing this in the first place. But hey, this is my blog and I can post what I want.
I actually wanted to post a blog about jealousy today, but I will keep that for later. It didn’t feel right.
The funny thing is, I was actually planning on completely ignoring this inauguration and pretend it was a totally normal Friday. But this morning, as I was scrolling through my Twitter feed all I could think about is the future of this country, the future of its people and of course my own future.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty terrified, and many people are with me. But I don’t want anyone to think that this fight has been fought, and that we’ve lost. We are not bowing down to a king or dictator, the president is just an employee on a temporary job.
We’re gonna have to hold our breath a lot in the next four years, and it’s not going to be easy for any of us. If you’re queer, a person of color or anyone else that isn’t what is considered the default in this country, I want you to know that there are people that care about you and that will fight for you. I still have hope, and I need you to have hope too.
