With that being said, the tears are flowing inside me because I cannot ignore the feeling of "what have I done to you to garnish such hate?"
I need a moment to take in what happened. Please do not misconstrue this as disrespect for the outcome. I accept it, but it does not mean I understand it. For me, It is not about the politics, it is about the humanity.
I am as American as You and what you told me on November 8th is you do not like me. You do not Mexican-Americans like me. You do not like Mexicans. You do not like Minorities. You do not like Women. You do not like the people I love. You chose politics over humanity, and that is hard to take in. If I am completely wrong, maybe some of you Trump supporters will kindly help me understand how you looked past the hate and racism. Be open to me and I will listen.
Even after all this, I have not lost hope. I love this beautiful country of ours, and I have faith we will overcome this. Let's do our part to move us along with love and grace. I vow to do my part by continuing to try to be a good human, a good citizen and proud of where I come from. I will continue to break down stereotypes, and when they go low, I will go high.
