For the past two weeks I've been reading various articles to try to figure out what to do now that Donald Trump is President. How do I oppose Trump within the bounds of our American democratic republic and while maintaining our American values? Many columnists gave thoughtful suggestions on how to proceed and that has helped me a lot. It's been especially helpful to listen to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders speak of our responsibility to work with Trump on areas of common ground, but to fight Trump when his administration tries to take away the rights of vulnerable groups like Muslim Americans, immigrants, LGBT Americans and women. I believe that the Republicans' practice of obstructing President Obama's every initiative in the past 8 years has been very destructive to our democratic republic and I don't want the Democrats to follow the same path if they don't have to. Bernie Sanders has done a good job of telling Democrats where we can work with Trump and telling us when we need to fight Trump.

It's a week now since the shock of the presidential elections result last Tuesday. I've been deeply depressed about Donald Trump becoming President, but I congratulate those who are Trump supporters for being involved in this political process. I mourn with the Hillary supporters, as I supported Hillary too.

I'm sad and disappointed, but I still love America. If we love our country, we have to continue fighting for America to live up to its highest values especially during times when it's easy to lose faith in our country.

Now we have to defend our Muslim American friends from being scapegoated. We have to fight for our Hispanic friends and for those illegal immigrants from having their families torn apart. We have to fight for African Americans who are victims of racial profiling. We have to fight for our LGBT friends, as Trump has vowed to choose Supreme Court nominees that will overturn the ruling on Marriage Equality. We have to continue the fight for equal rights for women. We have to continue fighting for the poor and the marginalized.

That is our obligation as Americans.

Thursday night I phone banked for Hillary for about 2 hours. It was fun. When Hillary's lead in the polls was growing, I was thinking I might skip phone banking for her this year. When the polls began to narrow this week, though, I got a bit scared.

It was an enjoyable experience. A few people hung up on me. But most people were very pleasant. I talked to a few women who were angry at Trump's sexist comments and were determined to vote against him. I talked to one lady who hates both Trump and Clinton and is voting for a third party.
