At least 50% of our country put their hearts and votes behind something that a lot of people never expected: that Donald Trump could win the presidency. I, for one, was among those who completely got it wrong. But that’s ok – it’s not always about being right, it’s about trying to do what is right. For many, Hilary Clinton did not represent what their issues are about. We have to accept the electoral college count, and move on. When a team loses a football game, it’s not good sportsmanship to argue the score. But it is good sportsmanship to train like a motherfucker, pull the team back together, and fight harder for the next win.
So, what to do next? What will Trump be able, and not be able, to accomplish? The second week of December (date to be announced), we’ll be having an evening event at BKYC with some political activists who can help guide us on how to be proactive about the rights of our citizens, and the health of our land, that may need to be defended or supported. We should be proactive not just during the times of Trump, but during all times.
We’ll announce the dates and program in the next week or so – but for now, keep your eye on your calendar for December 10th-15th.

And we can also remember this, from the Bhagavad Gita:
Having made your mind even in regards to pain and pleasure, gain and loss, conquest and defeat, engage in the battles that are righteous, unavoidable, and in defense of the wellbeing of all. You shall incur no stains upon your field of consciousness. II.382
