Donald Trump will be president. We need to talk about it.
Today as we visited my kids' pediatrician, My son blurted out: "Did you vote for Trump or Hillary?" She is a wonderful doctor and has taken care of my two kids for many years. I was embarrassed by my son's question and quickly changed the subject.
I started to think about it more. What if she had said she voted for Trump? How do I explain to my child that she is still caring and loving?
My answer immediately was WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT!
I need to talk about it with my kids. I need to talk about it with other adults. I need to talk about it with Trump voters.
I need to learn why others voted for him. I need for them to tell me that, as a Hispanic immigrant, I am welcome here. I need them to say that they do not believe all Muslims are bad people, and that women are more than a number in the beauty scale.
I will have those conversations.
