I can’t not post about Trump. He already has removed all mention of climate change from the White House website on the grounds that it doesn’t exist. OK – because I moved back to Scotland after spending my teenage years in California I didn’t have to face the dilemma of who I would vote for, though I could have registered as an American citizen to state my opinion.

I can’t make any blanket statements about how America is going to be great again – I always thought America was great even if I wanted to live in Scotland more. There are many examples of immigrants to America who succeeded beyond belief, like Andrew Carnegie and John Muir, and there has always been latent hostility towards women and their wonderful bodies who bear the children in that society and are not really treated with the respect that they deserve.

I’m so very proud to be Scottish and I was proud to be an American immigrant, but I can’t accept that being of Scottish heritage would justify anything but consideration for people and their right to education, health care or a safe clean environment.

I’m also very proud of my oldest son who marched in D.C. yesterday and represented all the women in our family who couldn’t be there, proud of all the women who made their presence known and questioned the basic assumptions of this new government. I’m writing today to state my opinion because I couldn’t be there yesterday. And I do wish Mr. Trump success because he is the elected president, and as the saying goes, “I wouldn’t want him to crash the airship we’re all riding in.”

In my case, I believe in a Higher Power and that the future of our world does not rest with one individual and that Mr. Trump will realise that it’s not ultimately in his hands.
