If I said I was surprised by the outcome of the EU Referendum that would be an understatement. As an American living in the UK, I am unable to vote. It's understandable, I'm not a citizen, I just have permission to live here (thank you very much btw). My husband, on the other hand, is British. So, politics is an active subject in our house. Don't get me started on who I wish would sit in the oval office come November -- cough, cough Bernie Sanders, cough! I'm definitely not out of the loop. Did I know there were nearly as many "Leave" folks as "Remain"? I was sure it'd be a pretty close call. Did I ever think the United Kingdom would actually have an outcome of 51.9% to 48.1% in favor of leave? Not a chance in hell!
Now, whether you are for the outcome or against it is no business of mine but I truly believe, for the first time, I am witnessing people flocking to their voting stations and making their votes count; not just in the UK but in the US too. That is HUGE! And while not everyone may agree, just like I may hate the idea of Trump and others love him, we are all still people that need to accept and understand each other. Although I am uncertain of the UK's future, for now, I just remain in awe of it all. This change is a serious thing. I can't deny that. You could literally feel it in the air yesterday.
What were your feelings on the Referendum? What do you expect from its outcome?
