January 20, 2017: Wear Black Day
Well, there we have it.
Donald J. Trump will be sworn into the Presidency, January 20, 2107, about a month from now. The ugliness is now staring us squarely in the face.
So what do we do?
Here's an idea. Let's make this a thing.
January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day in Washington, DC. Since it's going to take place and Donald J. Trump is to be sworn in as our 45th President, let's do this.
Let's all wear black.
We can't all go to Washington. We can't all be there and protest, much as we'd like and much as he, Trump, deserves.
So let's do the next best thing.
Let's all of us, coast to coast, wear black.
Head to foot.
Let's show our quiet, even silent protest at this misogynist, sexist, racist, emotional man-child being foisted into the highest and most powerful government position in the nation and the most powerful position in the world. Since the Electoral College goes through with this and does vote him in, let's show our cohesion.
Let's "put it out there", to the nation and to our fellow Americans and to the world that we're concerned and that we in no way supported, then, nor support now this petulant, unthinking man in the White House.
Yes, we support him, as far as it goes, as President, but only because we must. We only support him out of acknowledgement of this reality, this ugly, sad, even dangerous reality that the Electoral College got him into the presidency.
But that's as far as it goes.
January 20, 2017. Wear black.
