FREE WORDS POST ELECTION

FREE WORDS POST ELECTION We are eleven days into this country having President-elect Trump hold his title. When my roommates and I watched as each state fell red, I couldn’t help but wonder how my life would be affected by that moment, by those few seconds of Rachel Madow losing her shit on live television. The world isn’t in flames and he hasn’t declared war on the rest of the world, but I can say that my relationship to this country has changed.
