How to Make Sense of the Election – A Blog of Resources

This blog post is a bit different from my past work. It has been almost two weeks since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Now, I have my opinions and they are too unorganized to post right now…and quite frankly I would not feel any better typing them out or recording a podcast over them. It just isn’t worth the annoyance and anger it will cause me. I’m just tired.

That being said, I know many people are hurting and trying to make sense of what has happened. There is a lot to think about and I am losing track of it all. So I am making a list. The list is for myself and for anyone who cares to read. Below I have provided links to what I have been watching, reading, and listening to, and hopefully this will help us understand why Trump was elected, what it means moving forward, and what we can do to promote love.

These resources are all a diverse group of perspectives and while I find something to gain from all of them, some of them I find harder to swallow than others. But please know these are supposed to give us (and myself) a chance to hear all sides and just listen. However, as an avid Trump opponent, I will outright say that I do not promote any hate that exists in these sources. It is not tolerated, it is not to be normalized, but only exists on this list as a way to gain perspective on why this happened.

Some things I have yet to consume and I will put a star by these to make you aware of this fact because time is slim at the moment and I can’t do it all before I want this post to go up.





*- Articles/podcasts/videos I have either not yet consumed or have only partially consumed
