This thread is for positive posts for how we'll get by after the 2016 US election. Articles about how we've been through worse and survived, analysis that points to there being a way forward, maybe even distractions.
I know this thread may seem insane given what's happening across the forum, but there have been posts in the US 2016 election thread that gave me some hope. Right now I feel similar to the way I felt after 9/11. I feel numb and frustrated and depressed and anxious. It's a really toxic mix and it's not healthy for me. I need something to soothe me so maybe later I'll be able to get back into the proverbial fight. Until I feel steady enough to do that, though, I'd love to read, listen to or watch something, anything that says this might not be the end as we know it. If this thread stays empty, then so be it. But I think it would be nice if there was one thread, a catch-all for hope.
