I was wrong.
I was wrong to implicate any demographic of voters for the outcome of this election.
My father-in-law is right, it is the NON-voters who created this chilling outcome.

Maybe I shouldn’t have joked about death. I may be comfortable talking about death but I know most aren’t.
I am wrong to implicate anyone else for my own ignorance. It is no one’s fault but my own.
And I have been wrong in being blind to my own condescending liberal elitism, that is in part responsible for this Chump-elect backlash.
I don’t understand what is happening in this country. But I am willing to look in the mirror. And read and read and write and write and ask and ask. And make mistakes. And try again.
