What Happened | Hillary Rodham Clinton
post image

Everyone needs to read this book! It's so important to learn from our mistakes and make sure we protect our future democracy. I cried and laughed through her story of heartaches and triumphs. Hillary is an inspiration and I will be forever grateful everything she has done for women, children, and humankind. #neverthelessshepersisted #lovetrumpshate #onwardtogether

I finished my third book of the year. The ending made me cry! #kind #lovetrumpshate

WarpedSweetness I have one of the Kind pins also. 2y
MallenNC Such a good book! I was hesitant to read it because I wasn't sure I wanted to relive it yet but she did a good job making it a more positive book. 2y

Graciouswarriorprincess @MallenNC I wanted to wait and Happy that I did. It was positive but so sad. 2y

I'm going to try and read today.

I feel better today than I did yesterday.

Unfollow me if you agree with any of the shit that happened yesterday. My existence and safety means more to me than your privilege or follow.

Sace ❤️ you're stuck with me as a follower. I've been in profanity mode for the last 24 hours. This is all so fucked up. Pardon my French. 2y
Julsmarshall Yesterday, so heartbreaking. Reading helped me, I hope it helps you too. Sending ❤️ and support. 2y
Libby1 You're stuck with me if that's ok with you. I hate what's happening and I'm so so sorry. I hope you find all the support and rest you need from those close to you. 2y

TheNextBook @RestlessFickleBookSlut I laughed so hard reading your and @Libby1 response! Yesterday was rough and I've been on an emotionak rolloercoaster knowing that there will be more fighting and that I'll be a part of thag fight! I'm glad you guys are by my side! I'm stuck with the right people! 2y
rachelm ❤️thinking of you and your guys. 2y
monkeygirlsmama I'm seriously out of the loop. I can make a loose guess, but I think I need to pop over to a news website. Big hugs to you my friend. ((Hugs)) 2y
TheNextBook @Julsmarshall Thank you! Yesterday I was in a really bad head space and today is better! Reading is the escape I need today! 2y
TheNextBook @rachelm thank you love! Come back to DC so we can go out again! 2y
Ashley_Nicoletto Yesterday was heartbreaking. Hoping reading can help you escape. Sending lots of support. 2y
lauren.lerner You're stuck with me too. I've been crying off and on all morning now that the initial shock has worn off after yesterday. Hope reading helps you escape this bullshit for a while. 💓 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Stuck with me too!!! So horrible and heartbreaking 💔 2y
Bookzombie Also stuck with me! 💔 2y
Nuwanda You're stuck with me. Utterly terrifying and heartbreaking, but I'm here for long haul and for the fight. ❤️ 2y
DeborahSmall Heartbreaking xx 2y
Suet624 I am so distressed and depressed. I'm with you. 2y
Notafraidofwords I'm so heartbroken. We are in this together 💛 2y
dariazeoli I think yesterday has a lot of us in a profanity-laced state of heartache. I'm on the only side. Yours. 2y
DGRachel I don't see how anyone can be ok with yesterday. It's heartbreaking and sickening. They went with the intention of starting a riot. Someone on Facebook or twitter wrote that you don't go to a peaceful protest armed to the teeth and in riot gear. I'm horrified that this happened in my country. {hugs} 2y
Yellowpigeon I haven't posted much on Facebook because it will be nothing other than ungrammatical profanity. Finding myself deeply disgusted with more people 2y
Blaire It is so sad and disturbing that people feel so much hate. I am taking my kids to a candlelight vigil at a local church tomorrow night. #lovetrumpshate #resist 2y
TheNextBook @Ashley_Nicoletto @lauren.lerner @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Bookzombie @Nuwanda @DeborahSmall @Suet624 @Notafraidofwords @dariazeoli @DGRachel @Yellowpigeon @Blaire Saturday was rough. Sunday was somewhat better. The last few months have been hard there is no way around that. I try to keep my Litsy outburst to a minimum because this is a place where I get to love books and escape. But when thay world is blocked because I can't find an escape... 2y
TheNextBook ...well then I get just even more upset because I need the self care! Everyone who is sticking around, offering support I really appreciate it! I can't put into words how much I appreciate it. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
DeborahSmall I think I speak for most and I'm sure all our litsy family, when I say this will always be a place of love and support ❤️ hugs 😘 2y
Jinjer Totally with ya!!!! 2y

I was super excited when my son chose this as our bedtime read-aloud book because I somehow had never read it! It of course was so good, so well-written, and so relevant. ❤ #lovetrumpshate #lovewins #resist

Lindsy I comfort read this the day after the election 3y

Christine @theladygreer Yes! So glad I finally read it. 3y
AEBowenPhD I also just read this for the first time! It works for the present on so many levels. http://bookriot.com/2017/02/28/reading-wrinkle-time-first-time-trumps-america/ 3y
Christine @BowenMurphy I LOVED your Book Riot piece!!! We had just a few chapters left when it was posted, and I made myself wait until we'd finished the book to read what you'd written. It definitely enriched my reading experience! 3y

Finally had some time to savor the ending of this book. My heart hurts thinking about our country's history and how some things haven't really changed. #lovetrumpshate

Seeing my crocuses pop up always reminds me of the source of saffron and the tagged book sounds inspirational. If you are interested in quality spices and supporting a business that speaks out for #socialjustice, you'll find Bill Penzey inspirational, as well. Just google him. Even if you order online at www.penzeys.com request a catalog, for spice info, recipes, and diverse cooking stories. #litsycooks #resist #lovetrumpshate 💜🍽🍳💕

AlaMich I love Penzeys!! The closest one--which wasn't that close--closed a few years ago. So now it's online. But yes, they're a great company!! 3y
TrishTheBibliophile I always enjoy the Penzey's status updates on Facebook! So great ❤💜💙 3y

readinginthedark Penzeys is amazing! That reminds me that I need some vanilla extract and Italian seasoning! And mine is right next door to my favorite bookstore...😁 (edited) 3y
lynneamch Lucky you @readinginthedark ! I don't have a local Penzey's, but I can go to the Naperville, IL store when I visit the granddaughters in March. Google maps tells me Anderson's Bookshop is just around the block. Woo hoo! 💕 3y
DebinHawaii I love Penzey's!! 💜💜💜 3y
lynneamch I thought about you @DebinHawaii and wondered if Penzey's shipped to Hawaii. ☺ 3y
DebinHawaii @lynneamch They do although the shipping to non-contiguous states 😬 is fairly slow & spendy. I try to get to a store & stock up when I am in Oregon visiting family. 3y
readinginthedark @lynneamch That'll be a fun trip! 3y
