A world in protest

There is definitely a strange energy surrounding the new President of the United States,  a completely different energy than that which was experienced 8 years ago.

Those with absolutely no political opinion at all have become quite opinionated, tensions seem to be rising quite high, and the fact that the word “tension” is  being used at this time confirms the strain that the American political system is having on us all globally.

You can see it in all the news feeds, on social media. It’s everywhere. The tension and apprehension ascending on the world today. Protests, demonstrations, fund raisers. It’s all coming to a head these next couple days.

According to USA Today

An estimated 1 million people plan to demonstrate in all 50 states and 32 countries.

The new President was very vocal about changes he wanted to make some of which were quite hard to comprehend, but as his term begins let’s wait and see whether he will be as effective the president as he predicts he will be. Time will tell indeed. The world is watching… and rising up to protest. How do you feel about all this upheaval? Hit me up on Facebook and  Twitter and let’s talk about it!
