Businesses board up before Election Day.

This is not a cool sight. Not for those who want to live in a representative democracy. Free to vote for their candidate or party of choice, no matter which side. Free to live without political violence or the threat of violence.

I noticed while walking through downtown San Diego that some businesses are boarding up doors and windows anticipating the possibility of destruction and looting.

No matter the outcome of this year’s election, no matter who is disappointed or who is elated, whether power over others is increased or diminished, may a shared sense of our common humanity prevail.

Downtown San Diego has been my home for many years. My online activities reflect my love for writing, blogging, walking and photography.

  1. Saw items on the news here in UK today about places in the States boarding businesses up because they are so worried about what might happen during the election result. Hope you all stay safe and ok. Bad enough for you all with all the pandemic worries without things like this as well.
