Talking Through What Happened Last Night


I am having trouble putting my feelings into words today. I’m a political nerd so please don’t take this as partisan. It’s not meant to be. I more or less need to talk myself through some things. I never bought into the “Trump train”. I knew this election was going to be close but I never in my life saw Secretary Clinton losing Pennsylvania and/or Wisconsin.

Whatever happens tonight, I will continue to fight to continue being an optimist even in the hardest times. With that, take us away Mitch! (I’m not sure if this YouTube video will share with the settings correct or not, but it’s slowed down for some reason. Change the setting to Speed: 1.25 if it is still slowed down.)
