I know a lot of intelligent people, and I know many of them are afraid to hope their candidate will be elected. They think that if they set their sites low, if they shrug away the possibility, that they won’t get hurt. I know a lot of people who are afraid to believe in things because everything seems so tainted and sad and wrong. How is it that the generation I know – 20-35 years in age – are so jaded and glum about the prospects of this country?
It’ll be okay emo kids. No matter what happens, it’s gonna be okay.
