Yes, the Trump Presidency is Depressing. But the Last Thing We Should Do is Hide

In the past week, scrolling through my social media feed had been a torture. I still find it hard to believe that Trump–the epitome of everything despicable about the human society–is the current president of the United States of America. It is so tempting to just hide and resign to the thought that there’s really nothing to be done about it now. Seeing news regarding his latest assaults to human decency takes its toll. It is demoralizing. It is exhausting.

But just accepting or ignoring the blunders of this atrocious person is not a choice. It should never be. There must always be people who should resist, fight for what is humane, lest we get irretrievably lost in the dark.

Hiding is not an option. Everyone who has a voice, especially those whose voice could reach many, should speak up and defend our right for freedom, equality, acceptance, and human decency.

That, or we might as well join in paving the way to the Modern Dark Age.

I’d rather not.
