[W]aking up to another mass shooting on the news, or another incident of unpunished police brutality. I remember listening to speeches rife with racism and sexism given by presidential candidates over and over again. I remember the denial of climate change amidst sixty-degree days in December. But most of all I remember wondering if it was always like this, and if I just hadn’t looked hard enough until now.

I will remember Donald Trump. [Most] definitely, Donald Trump.
