Quote: Do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world. – Desmond Tutu

Quoted by Tim Fargo

The world was overwhelmed this morning by the result of the Election. Some are overjoyed and some are desperate. Some are welcoming the era of liberation and some are ready to jump the cliff. Stock markets surged. People wore mourning faces. It is like the end of the world.  The nation was divided into two. The world was divided into two. When the patriotism is thrown at bay, will there be any hope whoever is in power?

What are we talking about? Are we talking about the US as a nation, or are we talking about the favor for or contra to our own preference? We used to condemn the personal attacks between the two candidates during the debates and the whole election period, but are we practicing the same personalization of a nation’s future? Does it matter whether it is the Republican or the Democratic, as long as whoever is in power does the right thing to bring prosperity and growth to the US?

We should be allowed to express our preference and vent our disappointment at the high point. We should also hold up high of what we actually want. The time we spend analyzing the problems or merging in sadness can be better used to find solutions and plan what we can do. If our celebration is for the victory of a country’s new President; if our tears are for the haunted uncertainty over the country, let’s do what a citizen/resident can do, be supportive, be contributing and be understanding. All what we will do is for the country, if that’s what you are praying for.

At the end of the day, it is not Trump or Clinton, it is not Republican or Democratic that can do anything, it is the United States of America, it is the people of the United States of America, who stay strong and prosperous. We are not living for Trump. We are not living for Clinton. We are living for our own identity.

“Together we are stronger.” Who said it is irrelevant. The truth is the truth. We are contributing for the country, a place to call home. Long live, America!
