Okay, we’ve all had time to process the shock of the election. If anything, I think it woke us up as a nation and made us pay attention to a divide we had previously been trying to ignore. Many people, including myself, are more inspired than ever to act out in hope, kindness and love. As disappointing and scary as it initially felt, I found solace in the blogs, articles and public figures that promoted the importance of positivity. Here are some of the people, places and things that shared my grief and lifted my post-election spirits…
