As incredible as it may seem, Donald Trump has become the next President of the United States. It may feel like we can't trust our government to look out for us, but with remarkably low voter turnout, it looks like we can trust Americans to look out for each other. Despite your reservations about last night's results or your worries about your own personal future, we need to work together.
