“You will have trouble in the world; but courage! I have overcome the world.” (Jn 16:33)
Whatever will be the outcome of this election, I realized, I will still be doing the same things after this. I will still be teaching about love for our country and good citizenship to my students. I will still be working hard to provide for my family. I will still be performing my civic duties. I will still be making myself available to whoever needs my help and service. The outcome of this election won’t change me or stop me from doing something good for my family and country.
I refuse to believe my life is doomed in the hands of whoever will sit in office because if I do, that is just simply saying, this life that I work so hard to build is not my own doing. I refuse to let myself be carried away by talks of a gloomy future for my kid because as it is, I am doing the best I can to raise her in a way that she’ll survive and thrive in that future that everybody seem to be afraid of. Yes, current situation appears worrisome I see that, but my faith dictates that I remain hopeful, and I will. God is not finish with this country yet, and things always happen according to his plan.
