THE ELECTION was last Tuesday November 3rd. Vice president Joe Biden is the projected winner with 16 electoral votes as Pennsylvania ushered him into the 46th President of these United States. Joe Biden’s supporters were dancing in the streets. But only half the nation was celebrating, and the nation’s divisions remain on stark display.
In my hood there were banging pots, honking horns, primal shouts — burst from all directions as people stood on balconies and shouted in the streets and across driveways in excitement. But not everyone was dancing. And not everyone was happy.
A record number of more than 77 million Americans had voted for Mr. Biden, the Democratic challenger, and his running mate, Kamala Harris, the first woman elected as vice president. Also true was that more than 71 million others now had to grapple with the concept that their candidate — Donald J. Trump, the Republican incumbent — would most likely be branded by his own worst epithet: LOSER. And the only hope being offered by their leader (President Trump) is a vow to challenge in the courts what he asserted, without evidence, was a fraudulent election.
So for some, the election is over but for in denial, it’s not!!!
