For the second time this year I woke up, checked the news, and felt like I had woken up in the wrong universe.

I am still sad, and angry, and afraid, but now that some time has passed I'm determined. I am going to donate to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood; Jezebel has a good list of organizations people can donate to, if you haven't seen it yet. I am going to write a letter to Hillary Clinton to say thank you. The glass ceiling is holding but it's been badly cracked and I know we can do it next time. I know we can. Every time I want to despair I think of history and how far we've come, even though there's so much farther to go. Look at a hundred years ago. We didn't get here without fighting and I'm not saying progress will happen without more fighting, but it can be done and has been done.

I wholeheartedly concur. I'm not letting my rage die anytime soon because I'm going to need it for the next 4 years to keep going and to keep fighting.

I joined [community profile] thisfinecrew which has a bunch of information on ways we can help and fight.
