Dear American People

Dear American People,
What in the world, is the matter with you? Do you realize that you are acting like a massive bunch of spoiled children? ALL of you. The world is watching you by the way... and they are laughing at us. As I watch and read the reports of the riots, protests and how some are acting towards others, I can only hang my head and cry. That and ask, what in the world, is the matter with you?
You don't like the outcome of the elections, I get it. You don't like President-elect Trump, I get that too. Other than dislike, I realize that there are other various emotions boiling over, or simmering inside. The thing is, you...are....acting...ridiculous. You are not handling this in anything even remotely resembling a mature fashion.
First off let me ask you, did you vote? Did you bother to get up and take yourself down to the poll and cast a vote? It doesn't matter if you voted early or mere moments before they closed the doors, what matters is, did you vote? If you didn't, then you shouldn't be out there showing yourself as you played no part in the decision. Did you vote, and your choice not get elected? It happens, get over it. There have been times when I have voted and my choice not get elected, I didn't run out and start screaming and crying or hiding in my bedroom crying and wailing out my sorrows. I didn't join others and go burn things in the highway.. that's a really good way to get run over by the way. Just so you know. That comment about going to play in traffic, that was and is supposed to be just an expression, an old insult. You aren't really supposed to go and play in traffic trying to disrupt the flow and possibly preventing someone from getting emergency care. You may prevent the police from getting to a call and saving a life. Get out of the road..please.
 College kids, you need to grow up a bit here. One, the world did not end with this election and colleges who are babying you are doing you no favors. We've done a great injustice to you and those before and after you with the 'everyone included' actions when we give all who play a sport a trophy. It takes away from the worth of the trophy and it gives the players no incentive to try harder. We have handed everything to you, built up your self esteem to the point where you feel entitled to anything and everything being your way. Nope, sorry.. grow up and take a look at the real world. Some times, many times, things happen that we don't like. Things happen that we don't expect, things happen.. grow up and accept it.
 Trump supporters, stop it. Some of you are acting like insensitive bullies. You are badgering people, you are destroying private property, you are giving grief to others, just because you think you can. So what if someone you know, someone you run across, someone that you are related to voted for Hillary? That gives you no right to act as you are. You are handing them the very things they feared, stop it. Grow up and act like an adult. Grow up and in maturity, accept that Trump is the President-elect and walk away from the redneck actions that you have been doing. There are a lot more people than you know, who are watching. Do you honestly want your kids to see you acting so when you have told them not to act in such a manner? People are watching, people are seeing and people are not liking what they see. We try to stop our children from being a bully in school, now we as the adult need to stop being the bully just because of how someone voted.
 Clinton supporters, you're no better. You've cried fowl, you've demanded that Trump be removed, you've signed petitions demanding that Hillary be made president. You've screamed for the Electoral College to be done away with or in the very least changed. You've marched, you've blocked roads, you've called names and thrown punches.
 Each and every one of you are in some way all a part of what is going on. The world is watching you. I can only try and imagine what every veteran who has ever served this country must be thinking and how they must be feeling as they watch you scream, threaten and burn flags. How their heart must break and tears fill their eyes. You are all an embarrassment and you all need to stop and behave.
 I know that some are afraid, afraid that rights they have will be taken away. Some fear that the life they are accustomed to is going to change. It probably is.
 We don't know what will happen with Donald Trump as president. I do not for one moment think that all of the gloom and doom that is being predicted will come to be. I don't believe that he will set human rights back a hundred years. I don't believe, that you are accomplishing anything with the way you are acting other than to give all of those in other countries reason to laugh at us. Grow up, please.
 We need to stop the foolishness and start working together. We need to stop our actions of hate, anger and fear and hand in hand move to rebuild and return this country to what it is, an amazing and wonderful place, where we can all live in peace...together. As one people, in one nation, under God. Together. But we have to grow up first and get over ourselves.
