I was in shock the day of the election this past November. I was quite young when 9/11 happened, relatively speaking. It was my freshman year of highschool and it just didn’t have much of an emotional or cognitive impact on me. Only now do I really understand the consequences of that day. For many others, however, 9/11 was a day that changed their entire worldview, similar to JFK being shot or Pearl Harbor being bombed. Everyone seems to remember what they were doing and where they were.
Donald Trump being elected President of the United States had the same world altering impact on me. It was just beyond the realm of what was possible for Americans to do and beyond my comprehension. In response to not understanding something, I have one habitual reaction.
Read, study, learn.
Below are the books I’ve read since the election and a handful I’d still like to read. Please do let me know if you’ve found anything not on the list worth reading.
