We have had it easier than younger people adjusting to this dreadful election. I'm old enough to remember '68 when Nixon was elected. And Reagan, and the Bushes. We lived through that and we'll make it through this, remembering that we're still stronger together. Ernestine Rose provides an inspiring example: she fought all her adult life for women's rights, abolition of slavery, and free thought. She lived to see the nominal end of slavery and some gains for women, but not the vote. She never gave up.
