The Sadness

Today's a sad day.  There's been some crying.  There's been some heartache.  I knew it was coming.  I was the one person who without reservation declared that I thought Trump would be the winner of the election in the international poll I conducted on Saturday (Sample size 11).  I wish I could have been wrong.
Looking forward,  the Thirdlanders will be starting a unit on using creativity to work for social justice.  We'll be focusing on music as representations of collective identity and action. The unit comes at the perfect time.  We'll be dusting off We Shall Overcome and singing it together with fortitude and determination.  Join in, my friends.  Let's start the singing.  Oh Take My Presidential Blues Away.
