Congratulations to my friend, President-elect Donald Trump. He is a cat with nine lives. Many times I thought he was finished, yet he tapped into the core sentiment of the American people and won.
Also, my respect for Hillary Clinton has gone up. She is a tough competitor. My poor dad lost his election for Lt. Governor of the State of Hawaii and that defeat crushed him and our family.
I felt for Hillary as the returns came in and the map of the US went red for Republicans rather than Blue for her. I doubt if I could have taken such a massive personal vote of no confidence. She has my respect.
You may know that Donald Trump and I wrote two books together. I still cannot believe I am on the cover of two books with the President of the United States. That is beyond being lucky and my wildest dreams.
While I am happy he won, I am concerned for him. He is President at one of the most turbulent times in world history. I know he will bring changes, but I wonder what the changes will bring.
I know the future is bright, yet I am afraid in the short term…our nightmare has just begun. May God watch over all of us during this time of global change.
