All the speeches are done and the transition begins. Whether I like the results or not the election results from my city council to leader of the country are final. I've never been one to engage in politics on social media or this blog and will continue to keep those activities for fun and respite.
I will for damn sure call, write, and meet with those in elected positions so they understand people care about the issues they are deciding. I implore you all to be proactive members of the democratic system. Know what's being considered, be informed, and exercise your rights through calm and clear headed means. Give facts and tell true stories of the impact positive or negative of a legislated decision. Don't just hit Share and Like on Facebook and pretend that means your engaged in the issue. The work doesn't start now-it should never have stopped, to make government work. Sadness, tears, pity, and hopelessness is done. Accountability going forward is my mantra. Rant over and I'll be back to money woes, stretching the budget, cooking, and day trips tomorrow.
