United We Stand, Divided We Fall

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

I’m still in shock. How could it happen? Trump our president? I cried during the election, and I cried after.

Questions have flooded my mind. What will happen to our country? To our world? How will we maintain peace?

Aside from my feelings and questions, I need to stay focused on the day ahead. Today I attended a Veterans Day ceremony and heard several veterans speak about the wars they had fought in to guard our country, keep us safe, and maintain our freedom.

It reminded me that regardless of my opinion about the next president, I need to embrace the new leadership, do my duties as an American, and unite with my fellow citizens, regardless of who they voted for.

The world with its terrorist groups and economic ups and downs needs our country to be strong—and the only way we can do that is if we stand united.

I love my country, and even though the new president was not my choice, I pledge allegiance to our flag and our leader.

It’s a new day. May we go forward in peace, acceptance, and unity.
