DC definitely showed up to celebrate the end of a dark period in American history. And this election does have a lot to celebrate- the first woman and person of color VP, historic turnout, superstars like Stacey Abrams putting in serious work to flip states like GA. But there's also a lot that's pretty sobering. That historic turnout also showed that while Trump may have been repudiated, Trumpism will definitely persist. There are bones deep divides that have been put in stark relief in the past 4 years and just electing Biden doesn't solve anything. There's a colossal amount of work to be done not just to get back to some semblance of normalcy, but to correct what's wrong about that "normal" to begin with. I hope people maintain this energy even when there isn't a Trump to galvanize people to turn out. But it is definitely a huge relief to know that this shit is almost over.
