Editor's note 11/10/16

Some of us who worried that Donald Trump if he lost might not concede now have our own concession speeches to write. Congratulations to Mr. Trump and his supporters who are pleased to have taken their country back, to make it great again. There is good for the country in having the angry and out of power to feel democracy can serve them too. In his victory speech Trump appropriately recalled the words of the Civil War president, who said we must bind the nation’s wounds. “We must come together as one united people,” he said, giving hope that he will work toward that goal. To the disappointed young, we who have been around for awhile remind that politicians once elected don’t often keep their promises; Trump may not be as mean as he says. To the fearful undocumented and to Muslims, remember that this is a nation of laws and due process, to protect even those who aren’t citizens. To all who support peace, racial equality and social justice, it becomes more important than ever to remain healthy and strong, to stay in the fight. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
