12. When I read "What You'll Tell Your Kids About The Election Results" by Farah Miller on The Huffington Post
"You will tell them you are sad. You will say, yes, I voted for her. I was proud and confident in her abilities. I cheered, and sometimes wept, at her speeches and videos on the Internet because it was everything to see a woman rise up. I made calls and knocked on doors because I knew she was the best person for this job. I wore a pantsuit. I called myself A Nasty Woman."
13. When Max laughed when he saw Donald Trump on the news because he still thinks he's Alec Baldwin on SNL
14. When Mother Jones' Clara Jeffrey wrote, "Trump appealed to America's worst impulses. Now it's on the rest of us to show, to prove, that this is not all that America is. This is a time when we're called on to do things we may not have done before. To face down bigotry and hate, and to reach beyond our Facebook feeds in trying to do so."
