Today is a hard day. The past couple of years have been one hard day after another, so now I'm tired of fighting just to take my next breath.
But today is hard because my friends are terrified.
Some are watching as the nation enters into a relationship with an abusive man so much like the men that have abused them. They are watching as the system celebrates his "achievement", while those he's left is his wake are labeled liars and weak for having trusted him to do the right thing.
Over the coming years, I hope I find the strength to keep fighting. Because soon, we're all going to know what it's like to be left to clean up the mess made by a man who cares for no one but himself.
