Dear Darling Friends,
Wes and I are sitting here watching the election returns and we are both very close to vomiting. Yes, we've had a couple glasses of wine but that is not the reason. It's the fact that Trump is doing so well and we are just sick about it.
I'm writing to you because I said to Wes, "We are moving BACK TO SWITZERLAND if Trump wins." I said this somewhat lightly but now I'm serious. Trump just took Florida. He is such a jerk that I'm sure he will piss off some insane dictator who will nuke us and that will be that.
We are both beside ourselves!!!! We are so embarrassed for the USA. I can't stand it!!!!
Since my dad died at the end of May, the only family holding me here is my sister and my mother. I know my sister will come visit me and maybe my mom now that my dad is gone. It's too bad because we really LOVE our house and garden and neighbors. I will just have to grit my teeth and learn French. And find work.
I truly hope I am over reacting. I just wanted to warn you all that we may show up again. We do miss all of you so that would be GREAT to be with you. But this is a terrible, terrible reason to leave the U.S.A.
Please keep us in your prayers. I'm sorry Americans are so stupid. I voted for Hillary. I'm not in love with her but Donald Trump is intolerable. I hope you all are well. I have not prayed this hard since I was sixteen and prayed that Doug Clary would ask me to the prom. He didn't and I was better for it. But this is DIFFERENT.
Love and hugs,
