So what now? For many of us it feels as if the very values of truth and decency have been trampled and we find ourselves bruised and bloodied, fearful for what the future may hold for us.

But this is not the end of the world. It is a call to action.

That action will take many forms which will be the focus of many discussions in the days, weeks, ands months to come. For now, I’m keeping my WW working going. I feel that this election was about exposing an evil that has already been with us for a long, long time, but that we have been unable –or unwilling– to fully face. Now we have no choice. We must face our collective shadow. We must champion it and not become it. The demon rises. And we must be clean. We must be warriors. We must live by our ideals and model them for the world. We bring her presence into the world with us. THAT’S what I’m going to strive for.

For the glory of Gaea.
