We Make It Great, Not Them

Tomorrow, America gets a new president. Some view it as the apocalypse. Others see Donald Trump as the savior.
Surely, things will change. Things always change. But who we are does not have to.
Politicians would have us believe our future is in their hands. But this is wrong.

No one's getting the American Dream, a car, or even a pony when Trump takes office. We'll still have to think, hustle, and put skills to use to get these things if we want them. No one is getting saved.

And it's all good because...

We learn so that we can think.

We believe in people and in ourselves so we can persevere. 

We work together so we can gain skills.

We trust so we can build a better world around us.

Our future is in our hands. It has always been. And always will be.

Do not believe for a second that the opposite is true. You can be a pawn in the game or go out and create greatness in your life. It matters little who sits in that chair. 

Sure some things will change, but who you are; a good person who cares about others, never will, if you only choose so. It matters not if you play for the DFL or the GOP. 

We can knock down the walls that divide us. After all, they exist only in our minds.

There are more bridges than walls and all we have to do is walk across. 

We can choose to listen to the noise or rise above it.

We can rise together. 

No matter who won we can still create, believe, trust, love, and lift each other.

Because this simple truth remains:

We Make It Great, Not Them.
