12. Yes. Shock is a good word for it. So many of us were in shock, but there was also a disbelief that

it really happened. And there are many of us who still doubt the legitimacy of the 2016 "election" & I'm one of them. Yes, I do agree that so many Americans were blind to the corruption of Trump. Hell, during Thanksgiving 2016, my drunk niece was gloating & obnoxious about Trump's "win", when most of the family were still in shock & disbelief. Talk about a "last time event" - never going there again.

But this time it's different. Everyone know trump's schtick, more people than ever are voting. If he "wins" this time, something is definitely wrong, AND that I believe is what's got most people worried. What the hell do we do then? Meanwhile, I voted, my family voted, I've donated & donated again, I've helped people get engaged. I'm trying to be at peace. I'm cutting back on news, polls, etc. I've got my garden and favorite music. I've discovered opera, and am enjoying the intricacies of the art. And the stories behind the artists.

Peace to you, peace to me, and peace to all of us here during these next few days. When trump's having to pay attendees, I seriously doubt he has that sizable of a fan base.
