Inauguration Day 1/20/17

At a time like this, we cannot be quiet

When I was on the bridge, I noticed that everyone was wearing purple as a sign of solidarity. People looked sad and depressed as if something in their life is been taken away. On the way down to the bridge, I was talking to my friends who’ve all had President Obama for most of their childhood. It’s incredible that we’ve switched from the first African-American president to a borderline White supremacist so fast. For me, it’s so surprising to have a different president, especially someone who has made nasty comments about women and wants to build a wall to keep immigrants out. I was thinking about this when we were on the bridge, which made me feel frustrated that we weren’t doing more and that we were just standing on a bridge being quiet. I realize that we need to be inclusive of people who are Trump sympathizers, or maybe even voted for Trump, but I think this is a different scenario and we should do what we can to make our voices heard. At a time like this we cannot be quiet. We need to stand up and fight for our rights as a people and as a nation because that’s how we will build our nation back up from where Trump is going to take us.
