No Matter What You’re Feeling Today, It’s Important to Remember This
You know... I don't like to talk about politics on the air. I avoid it for a bunch of reasons. First, we're a Top 40 music station. We just want to have fun and play the hits!
Secondly, and more importantly, at the end of the day... who really cares what I think? I'm just one voice in more than 300 million here in America, and even though I have a microphone (and a lot of listeners!), my opinion isn't any more important than yours. That's one of the great things about this country.
So, even though you won't hear me talking about my opinions on the air, I wanted to post this here on our website. If you just listen to the Q and don't know me personally, you might not know that I'm a pretty "political" person. I care about our country, and I try to participate in our political system so we can all have a better country in the future. But for the first time in a while, I had a hard time getting to sleep last night, knowing that a person who I fought so hard to elect is being replaced today by someone who doesn't seem to share many of my values or hopes for the future.
Before I finally got to sleep last night, I shared what I was feeling on Facebook. In 2017, I think we should all resolve to "fight" less with each other online, me included, and start having more conversations with each other in person, so we can actually make things happen and solve problems together. We're not as divided as some people would have us believe.
So today, I want to congratulate our new President on his inauguration, and all of his supporters who fought for what they believed in. They deserve to celebrate today. Just remember - one of the best things about this country is that we schedule revolutions, every four years, just like clockwork. In the meantime, I hope that our new administration and Congress can do some good for all of us. We need it.
Today's a big day. Wherever you stand, share your thoughts, and commit to participate. America only works when everyone stands up and contributes to the process. And if you're feeling like I am today, remember... sometimes you lose. It's ok!
Good luck, Mr. President.
