Describe an event in the world that has affected you this year. How? Why?
Donald Trump won the White House. I have never seen this country more at odds with itself, and I have never see the kind of legitimate turmoil that has been brought about en masse because of it. Politics have become a serious sport and no longer a game ripe for ridicule. Two madmen are starting down each other at high noon with nuclear-tipped pistols, and I’m not sure Trump has the intestinal fortitude that Reagan had when it came to the Great Game with the USSR. Someone is likely flinch, and when he does, all hell will break loose–one way or the other.
