Donald Trump’s Win Has Made Me Question What To Tell My Future Kids

For as long as I can remember, being a mom has been a dream of mine.

Im not saying I want to be a mom tomorrow, but the thought of eventually being a mother has always been part of my life plan.

In fact, between my dreams of becoming a famous singer (Im tone deaf) and marrying Seth Cohen (hes not real), becoming a mom seemed like the most attainable goal I had.

And the day Id become a momwould be one of the best days of my life. I would shower my kids with love, just like my parents showered me with love, and I would teach them anything is possible, just like my parents taught me anything is possible (hence, my dreams of becoming a singer and marrying Seth Cohen).

But those hopeful thoughts all changedfor me when I woke up this morning and realized we actually elected Donald Trump as our president.

Suddenly, the thought of becoming a mom doesnt fill me up with joy. No, instead I get sad and I get scared.

Why? Well, becauseI have no idea how I would explain all this ignorance and hate to a child.
