LONDON — You don’t need us to tell you that Donald J. Trump has been elected as president of the United States and consequently as leader of the free world.
You also don’t need us to tell you that he is a highly controversial figure, or that his campaign rhetoric has brought to a head the bitter divisiveness of partisan politics in America and worldwide.
But you also don’t need to despair — now more than ever is the time to find a path forward marked by unity and resolve.
And on what is a bleak day for many, Twitter is uniting against the darkness with messages of optimism, grit, and determination that will get your fired up:
whatever happens tonight it’s our job to fight those in power and stick up for the powerless
that stays the same no matter who’s president

Doesn’t matter now. Only thing that matters now is the work. Fight. Go with love. Treat very existence as if it was your own.

I mourn but refuse to fear. Fear is what got us here. I still choose love. I will fight the darkness with everything I have at my disposal.

This will be the time for heroes & humanitarians. Every story needs a villain. We’ve nearly chosen ours. Rise up and fight hate with love.

Looking for a silver lining, maybe this pushes us to get more involved in our country and fight for the things that need fighting for.

We fight on. For equality. For inclusion. For opportunity. For justice. For science. This is not a defeat. It is a call to arms.

Here’s how to respond to Trump. Do something today to fight for the rights & values he opposes. Then do something tomorrow & the next day

This isn’t over. We will wake up tomorrow and fight. Like we have done for centuries. Get ready.

Don’t back down. Fight for what you believe in. Don’t accept bigotry or homophobia. Rally those around you. Don’t back down. No matter what.

Amidst swirling chaos and the daunting days ahead, there will always be hope, and there will always be resistance to ideas and individuals that threaten equality and tolerance.
Hunker down, stay positive, and get ready: it has only just begun.
