Some thoughts on the election

This was probably one of the most brutal elections many people remember. Often it seemed to be characterized by anger, and a constant demonizing of the other. It was not pretty. Many simply hoped that it would come to an end. In one way, it has. The election occurred and Donald Trump is the president-elect. But in a completely different way, the election exposed deep and ugly chasms between the way we see and think about each other. For some, it is not so much that racism was exposed, for example, but rather that it was more extensive than previously believed.
