It's not being a pessimist to be realistic. We have the data on Trump. NOW: be prepared to survive!
DONATE: to Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, NAACP, and so on. All the organizations that protect rights and make our lives better. Volunteer!
CONNECT: Hug your friends and family. Offer shelter to those who are being persecuted by crazy Trump followers, those who are feeling crushed and who need nurturing.
CREATE: More community. If you don't know your neighbors, get to know them. Start a coffee klatsche, a monthly or weekly get together. Organize a creative protest.
DON'T BE A VICTIM: Get all your medical stuff done NOW if you have ACA insurance or Medicaid or Medicare. Sign up for the ACA healthcare NOW if you need medical insurance. It will be here for a few months.
Stick together, love, hug, sing, dance and be very aware of what's going on. It's not "pessimistic" to be prepared! Like I said before: it's the Blitz and we can have the strength and fortitude and creativity to get through this alive together!
