It’s been one week since Donald Trump was elected the next president of our not so United States, ending one of the most vitriolic and nasty presidential campaigns in recent history.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, results from the U.S. presidential election came in. Simultaneously, a cacophony of noise from both sides, ranging from elation to dismay, filled the space.
If you’re like me, watching the political landscape both nationally and internationally has become gut-wrenching. With each side becoming ever more entrenched in its own perspective and biases, we all seem less willing to explore other angles and listen to the perspectives of others. It seems impossible to find any real solutions to this perceived gridlock, as the issues themselves continue to persist and even worsen.
