History will have a lot to say about this divisive and embittered campaign and election. No doubt there will be even more to say about the next four years. In shock and despairing over the results, I opened our doors to friends. We gathered to share our grief, to vent, to seek and offer support, and most of all to reaffirm our commitments to peace, to building bridges, to protecting the environment, to equality of rights and respect for all, to holding faith in our gifts, our voices, our humanity, and to stay the course as a community of compassionate, informed, and resourceful citizens. We also ate tacos, and built beautiful Lego creations.
