Making America great again?



As of last Friday, Donald Trump is officially the president of the United States.

Sounds like a movie plot doesn’t it?

Over this past weekend, woman all over the world marched in support of their rights. Some supported this movement, while others criticized it.

Tensions are high and in my opinion, it’s a scary time for our country. Those of us that were not in favor of Trump as president are scared about the future. What does a megalomaniac CEO know about governing a country? What’s to become of our insurance? Our child’s education? Our rights as women?

I will say this. I personally, did not vote for Trump. But I’m not rooting for him to fail. He is our president, whether we like it or not. And our future is in his hands. I’m hoping, for all our sakes, that he does succeed. Because the alternative is far to scary to comprehend.

We are blessed to live in a country that allows freedom of speech. We are free to speak our minds and have our own beliefs. However, the way that some people go about it is extreme and honestly, ruins it for everyone. Rioting and setting shit on fire doesn’t get your message across.

As an autism mom, I’m worried. I’m worried about my sons’ futures and their education. I’m worried about their insurance and I’m worried that the little they have provided to them will be taken away.

As a woman, I have always had the stance that the government has zero say over my vagina and what I do with it. Women are not inferior to men and it’s about damn time that the conservatives get that through their thick skulls.

As an American, I’m concerned about the direction our country will take. Will we be taken seriously with this man at the helm? Will we be targeted for destruction? There is a lot of unknown out there right now. And a lot of fear and anger. And it’s a scary mix.

Trump’s campaign was all about “making America great again”. But by who’s standards? I think it’s a loaded statement that is open to interpretation. Is his idea of making it great again setting the clocks back sixty years? Because that’s what it seems like. And I think that is what scares most of us that are not in favor of him as president.

I want to be able to provide a stable life for my kids. I want my youngest son to be able to get the therapy he needs without having to jump through a thousand hurdles. I don’t want to worry that the services they get at school will be taken away.

As I mentioned before, I’m not rooting for him to fail. I feel that’s counterproductive at this point. My only hope is that won’t screw things up beyond repair.

For those of you out there that are peacefully protesting and sticking up for what you believe in, I support you. The freedom to do so is your right and one of the many things that do make this country great!
