"I'm sorry" is a good first step for that unity and healing Trump and his supporters go on about

I'm sorry I don't worship Donald Trump as an infallible man-god. I'm sorry that I was one of the 65 million Americans who made the horrible decision to vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. I'm also sorry that my vote went against the wishes of the electoral college who, in their infinite wisdom, decided to gift us with your dear leader.

I'm sorry that I include GLBTQ-Americans, Muslim-Americans, Jewish-Americans, Americans with pre-existing conditions among my loved ones and I'm sorry that I am worried about their futures.

I'm sorry that I say that black lives matter even though I am a white person. I'm sorry that I see a militarized response to drug use when the face of that drug use is black but something that is a public health crisis when the face of that drug use is white as something that is wrong and racist.

I'm sorry that the flag I have is the contemporary American one with 50 stars and not some other flag like the Confederate flag... or the Nazi one.

I'm sorry that I see it being silly that we have an administration that wants to "join forces" with some polonium-slinging autocrat.

I'm sorry... So I guess we can work together for that unity and healing now, right?
