Where Do We Go From Here?

There are a lot of mixed feelings after the election.

Most importantly for myself is “What can I do now?”

No matter who you support, the world is going to change as we know it. What can we, as college students do, to make sure change is for the betterment of all and not just the few? College students don’t tend to have money to throw at issues we support.

There’s a lot of fear on both sides of our very divided nation.

I myself am a college student, and am no expert, but I’m going to continue to do the only thing I can right now.

I’m going to continue to learn. I’m going to try and understand and emphasize with people around me. The more I understand people with different viewpoints than I have, the better person I think we’ll be. As humans, we tend to stick more closely with people who think and speak the same as us.

Maybe that’s where we went wrong and became as divided as we are. I realize that I may be speaking from a place of privilege or maybe out of something naive. But I do know that nothing will get better unless we learn to compromise.
