Well… that would have to be one of the weirdest elections ever.
Australia just had its vote…. and we still don’t know who won. We won’t know for sure for a few more days at least.
What we do know is this:
There were some surprise winners this election.
Pauline bloody Hanson (and more from the One Nation party) + Fred Nile in the Senate. My least favourite politician in the country re-elected – George Christensen.
I’m sad that racist, homophobic, sexist views are held by some of our elected leaders. I’m so sorry if you are feeling unheard, unconsidered & unsafe from this election.
I don’t know the answer.
What I do know is this: I promise I’ll keep turning up everyday. Keep doing the best I can. Keep trying to help where I can, fix what I can fix, and tell my elected leaders: the voice of hatred and ignorance is not my voice, and not what you have been elected for.
I hereby pledge to keep loving and caring fiercely and tenderly. To keep caring for this earth and its people – all of us – its children, women, men, refugees, immigrants and disadvantaged.
I know that those people in parliament cannot fix the problems of this earth and all its people. I can’t hold them solely responsible. I know so much of the responsibility belongs to me. There is still much I can do, we can all do.
Keep turning up every single day to create the world we want.
I’m with you.
