I think that this whole election has brought out the worst in us. When we hold an election in this country it is based on winning and losing. When you win you shouldn’t gloat or rub it in other people’s faces. When you lose you accept and move on. We shouldn’t burn American flags and shoot people. This shouldn’t happen in the world. If you are so unhappy to be in this country then you can go to another country. After we accept this election we need to get right back up and try again. I don’t care if you lost or you can’t figure out why you lost, because there is always an opportunity to bounce back and try again in four years.
