CHAPTER 4: The Times They Are A-Changing
Entry #63: Made For You And Me
Autumn boi celebrating an autumn WIN!(IMAGINE PARTY IN THE USA PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND), lol. This morning a ray of light finally shined through the autumn leaves. BIDEN won!!! We have been sitting around waiting for the results of this election and here we are. We finally got those results. It has been a joy to see people dancing and singing all over the streets. It honestly feels like this weight has been lifted from our chest. Just because we won though, doesn’t mean things are going back to “normal". We have a lot of work to do and we have a lot of cleaning up to do from this hot mess over the last 4 years. It truly is a mess. But I believe, together, we can clean it up. It makes me emotional seeing an actual leader speak and address us. Because for the last 4 years. we all have been treated like trash. That gets so draining and we don't have time or energy for that to continue. We wouldn't survive if that Cheeto stayed in office for 4 more years. When I was in preschool we learned "This land is your land", and those lyrics have always stuck with me. As child of parents who immigrated from our small island into states, so that we could have more opportunities and the chance to follow our dreams, these lyrics were the prime example of what America should be. That was not the case for the last 4 years. As a gay man, as a man with a disability within my Glaucoma, as a POC, hearing actual leaders with actual plans really impacted me and my state of mind. Things have been so rough behind the scenes and this ray of hope was much needed for myself and so many others. I don't know what the future holds. I don't know what the future holds for everyone, but seeing this ray of light today, I do know that there is still a future somewhere out there in the world for us. We are in America. This land is your land, this land is my land, this land was made for you and me... Let's hope it starts to look that way again.
