“Don't accept the world as it is. Dream of what the world could be - and then help make it happen.” - Peter Tatchell

November 8th, standing on a busy street corner, encouraging my fellow citizens to vote... and being flipped off by passing drivers.

It has been three weeks since the 2016 presidential election, and I'm still moving through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I am currently standing on that "and" caught between acceptance and depression.
