“How are we going to talk to our kids about this tomorrow?” I ask him Tuesday night while watching the vote numbers come in. Our kids had watched some of the election but as the night went on and since it was a school night, they had to go to bed before it ended.
The next morning was hard and painful as reality set in.
It’s been a lot of discussion in our home over the last 48 hours on what has happened. And we figured that we’d continue to tell them what we’ve been telling them from the moment they could understand.
Love people. Stand up for one another. Be kindhearted. Spread good. Stay awesome. Lend a hand to someone in need. Treat everyone with respect. Love yourself.
Even though we, as a family, are very saddened by what the result is, we feel the best thing to do now is to move forward together – stronger than before.
Honestly, it’s hard and painful to be brave and move forward when you’re hurt, sad, and heartbroken. But it must be done. I choose to not stay stuck. There are two little people that are watching us and are looking up to us to do the right thing. And I would do ANYTHING for them. I want them to know that there is STILL good in the world and that they are a part of it.
Here’s to kindness, bravery, respect, marching on and love love love.
I love you Hope and Nicholas. More than words can say. #bethegood ❤️
