This has been a long day, full of disappointments, but now it’s over.
A lot of people have made a decision I feel is wrong, and I feel that a lot of them have made it for the wrong reasons.
I don’t hate them. I don’t think they’re stupid. I won’t call them names. I don’t want their decision to lead to them losing their jobs, or having less happy lives. Nobody deserves to be punished for doing what they think is the right thing.
I believe, above all else in politics, that we face global problems that can only be solved if we face them as a global community…but that has to start with us reaching out to the person right next to us.
I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring; markets may collapse, unions – centuries old – may crumble, politicians may climb over each others carcasses to, momentarily, be the one at the top of the heap, people who deal in hate may rise, people who talk of moderation may be vilified.
But we have each other.
We face the future together, and we will have better tomorrows.
