Don’t be sorry. Nothing to apolgize.

Welcome the uncertainties of life and go with the flow. You just experienced the beauty of living in a free, democratic country where **you**, the bloody ordinary citizens, the salt of the earth and the elites together, will make or unmake decisions, decide who you want, not **just** the uppity, academic pundits, not the media, not the rest of the world, not the soothsayers.

That you belong to the planet’s most powerful democracy for a reason. And you showed it collectively yesterday! Could have been in any direction. One person won.

Cant take anything for granted. Smugness died on 9th November, 2016, :-), won’t you say?

A new journey begins for a new meaning!

Go America!
