3. I have felt a lot of that weight lifted with the inauguration. It was a long, dark four years.

There is bound to be some residual depression. I have also felt better after tens of millions of Americans have acquired some immunity from the Trump Virus. I am feeling more optimistic than I have in four years. There is some relief, that at least a small majority of Americans can still come together to right a great wrong. Try to hang on to the positives and work to change the negatives.

I still fear that somehow, the 30 something percentage of Fascist prone Americans will pull off a Brown Shirt Revolution and it doesn't help to see states marching down the path of voter suppression and denial of the truth. History has proven that this fear is not without some justification. It breaks my heart to see that so many Americans are willing to blindly follow the big lie; I just can not understand it and I don't know where we have gone so wrong. Americans seem to somehow think that we are above the lessons of history and it simply is not the truth. We are at the fork of two paths, the path to the right is the highway to hell, the path to the left is full of hope.

We must all, through our fear and depression, keep our eyes on the ball and resist the rise of Fascism in our country by what ever means we each have. We must recognize that it is a minority of Americans that long for some right-wing revolution to make our country great again by returning to the days of robber barons, and white supremacy. We must remember, that while they have the guns, we have the brains; a far more powerful weapon.

We must show strength through the pain.
