I had a different blog post written for today but it might be more helpful if I write something else. Many people I know and like and love are upset and fearful. Let me say that if you are shocked and downhearted, one thing such a state in you shows is that you cannot always be sure of what will happen. My wife just recited a long list of things to be afraid of and I respect her thinking. However, staying alert and flexible, while showing kindness, and respect for the opinion of others, even when you strongly disagree can help move everything toward what you want and need. It still matters to stand up for what you believe and to work for a world you see as desirable.
