I’m running really late this morning, so, in order to get an open thread up, I will keep this really brief for now and may come back to develop this theme throughout the day.
I have gone through very painful experiences in my life. Ones that seemed pointless and designed for maximum pain and suffering. At the time, they made no sense and I could not see anything good coming out of them. But, in hindsight, I grew leaps and bounds in ways that I never would have without the major crises. And as time passed, it became clear that the negative experiences were actually blessings in disguise.
I have been wondering if that same principle can be applied to nations. Could this dark time in America’s history turn out to be a blessing in disguise? Would love to hear your thoughts.
Have a great weekend.

The temper tantrum may sound good, but no one actually follows through with it. Most recently, actress, producer, Hillary Clinton superfan, and all-around feminist maniac Lena Dunham declared she would indeed move to Canada if Donald Trump became president.
