I’m stranded on a desert island and theres nobody in sight, no land, no ships, not even the contrail of a jet in the sky. I open the one bag that happened to wash ashore with me and I discover, to my amazement and delight that the collective works of my favorite musical artist have survived along with the means to play them. As I lay flat-out on the beach my toes in the rising tide I compile my playlist in a very specific order, arranging the first three pieces, my favorites, to be the first last music I ever hear on Earth. The artist I chose to accompany me on my journey into oblivion?

The 2016 presidential election was polarizing. Donald Trump succeeded in winning over most of working-class America to snatch electoral votes, but many are dissatisfied with the outcome. Many feel this isn’t just a loss for their party but also an embarrassment for the nation.

Eighteen months ago I knew exactly what I wanted to do, who I wanted to be. I worked hard in my career, provided a valuable service and did my job well. I had no intention to deviate from the path I was on until in August 2015 that all changed when a letter came in the mail from a small private university law school offering me an opportunity to advance science in a way I knew was needed, but had no idea was possible. Without the assistance of a law adviser or any guidance whatsoever, I embarked down this strange and time- consuming path towards a law degree.

With the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States just days away, we should take a moment to know who Trump is putting into some of the most powerful positions in the U.S. government. Many of these picks have already sparked controversy, and for good reasoning, seeing as they may destroy the progress made under the Obama administration the last few years.

I have observed this election turn people of a generally kind nature, into ravenous venomous vipers towards each other. Whether you voted for Trump or for Clinton, it seems that there is a great divide. Trump supporters have had their intelligence questioned to death, and Clinton supporters are labeled as whiny and sore losers. There are three words that can assist us all in this needy time of common sense. Get over it! If you really are willing to not budge an inch, then you are part of the problem. There is no middle ground where there once was.

I am one of those people who don’t want to be friends with people who voted for Trump. Because I am friends with people who share my values, and if you voted for Trump you obviously don’t share my values.
