Love trumps hate. Even if it seems that the reverse was voted into office last night. God is still in control. He is- and will always be- my King. I will bow to Him alone.
My first response was familiar to most of you: what country is hospitable to American immigrants? Iceland? Ecuador? Where can I go to escape the inevitable destruction of our country?
But then I realized I need to check my privilege. Running away and leaving a dumpster fire burning in my native country isn’t the answer.
To my immigrant, refugee, Muslim, and LGBTQ brothers and sisters: I am so sorry. Please know that I stand by you, and I will do everything in my power to stand up for you and ensure your voices heard. Hate was given a megaphone on Tuesday night, but I will work and pray for Love and Compassion to prevail. I vow to not be apathetic to your oppression.
