A place of power within current politics

day 15 of 21 answers in 21ish days

from a friend in the US::::::::Ever since our electoral system decided that a crude reality television personality should act as the head of our nation for the next several years, I, as well as many people I know, am having a difficult time spiritually and psychologically. Personally, I'm having issues with anger and deep sadness - that people I've known for the extent of my life (parents, etc.) opted and are still opting to support indecent ineptitude. I don't want this anger and sadness to continue overwhelming me, either in my relationships with others or on a daily basis as I read the continually darkening news. Any advice?
