The aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla wind out of windows and right into noses. There's no denying. It's holiday season. If you were blessed enough to enjoy a tasty Thanksgiving feast surrounded by friends and family, you probably felt the love in the air! It was a day full of reminiscing and laughter. Thank God for the love! Unfortunately, there are people who didn't have a nice Thanksgiving feast, surrounded by loved ones.
So many of us have been deeply grieved by the results of the recent Presidential Election. Regardless of whom you voted for and the outcome, the process was emotional and heartbreaking. This recent election proved that we are in fact a nation that is still deeply divided. It illuminated the fears, anxieties, racism, bigotry and pain that exist in our society. On Wednesday morning, when we awoke to a new president many women were angry, Muslims were uncertain, and African-Americans felt like time would move backwards and the policies-freedom and equality that many have fought for would be revoked.
