As everyone knows, the election is over. Donald J. Trump is the president-elect of the United States. I understand the disappointment people may feel. I understand the emotions people may be dealing with. However, we must unite as a community and country.

If you’re a man, Donald Trump is your next president. If you’re a woman, Donald Trump is your next president. If you’re Hispanic, Donald Trump is your next president. If you’re African American, Donald Trump is your next president. If you’re a Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative or Libertarian, Donald Trump is your next president. If you’re gay, straight, bisexual or transgender, Donald Trump is your next president.

He might not represent your views or values, but Donald Trump is OUR next president. Accept the results. Come together and work together. Until we come together as Americans, we will continue to be divided.

As President Obama recently said, “everybody is sad when their side loses an election. But the day after, we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. We are not Democrats first, we are not Republicans first, we are all Americans first. We are patriots first.”

Come together and work together, because together we are stronger.
