Update - January 20th, 2017
Today is the inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump. Many fears are crossing my mind as I can barely fathom the idea that this is really happening. For months, I have seen and heard people talk about the possibility of this becoming a reality, but I have never even let myself understand that it could. I fear for the lives of many and cannot believe that a heartless, compassionless and inhuman person, such as Trump, is actually officially going into power. Only a year and a half ago did the United-States Supreme Court finally rule for same-sex marriage to be legalized. I remember the joy and happiness expressed by the millions of the LGBTQ+ community on social media. I remember thinking about how the United-States have evolved from the days where minorities were constantly attacked, harassed, bullied and, even, killed. Obviously, I was wrong. Since Trump was elected on November 8th, all I have seen is more and more hate not only in America, but all across the world. I see people expressing their genuine fears and sadness. People, who I thought had actually become more open-minded and accepting of others (minorities), showed their true colors. Racists, homophobes, sexists,...all these close-minded careless people are roaming the streets and are attacking others who are different, because they see that the president-elect is also doing so. I will never understand those people. I cannot make sense of all that is happening. I am hopeless and clueless as to what I can do. What is going to happen is not only going to affect the United-States of America, but is rather going to have a worldwide impact. Today is definitely bittersweet as I am feeling extremely lucky, but also terrified as of what's to come in the near future.
