Election Reflection

What can I say that hasn’t already been said during this election cycle. Secretary Clinton is highly qualified and Mr. Trump is not. I am scared.

I am scared because this election will have one of two outcomes. On November 9th my sisters and I will either celebrate an achievement that has taken us 44 presidents and far too long to accomplish or I will have to fear for the rights of my neighbors and my sisters. I will have to fear for our country and the members of this country that make it so diverse and beautiful.

You may not agree with Secretary Clinton. You may not like her. You may think she’s “crooked” or not relatable enough. But the president does not have to be relatable they have to be strong and qualified and Secretary Clinton is both of those things and she is a woman. She knows the value of diversity.

Donald Trump does not value my intelligence. He doesn’t value my compassion. He doesn’t value my art, or my voice. Donald Trump doesn’t value women for what makes them who they are he values them based only on the way they look and how they are useful to him.

I am proud of this country. We have so much potential. But we will not reach our potential if we are being lead by a man who does not value the members of society that don’t look or act like him. If Donald Trump is our president, if he is the role model for this country, I do not want to see what kind of behavior will follow. Nothing he has done shows me that he has the compassion and patience the president of our country requires.
