The day after

Working on these today: the 5 (now 7) stages of grief —

But this post from Wait But Why was a good read and a good reminder that “It’s going to be okay.”  Clinton’s and Obama’s graceful concession speeches are a good start towards trying to bridge the huge chasm dividing the American people.

One takeaway for now? Half of the population is devastated but the other half is elated; we have to understand each other.

Another takeaway? It really is important to vote. And a reminder about how to accept defeat gracefully. And one person’s to-do list for the day after.
