Caught On Tape: San Diego State University Hosts “Healing Circle” For Students Grieving Over Trump Win
San Diego State University on Tuesday hosted a ‘Healing Circle’ for students to grieve over the election victory of Donald Trump and develop ways to stand against ‘injustice.’
According to College Fix, the circle drew roughly 20 participants who sought to process their confusion, anger and fear over the presidential election results. Students sat at tables facing each other as facilitators talked them through the fact that they needed to come to grips with the election results.
‘I think at least for me that initial shock has worn off a tiny bit,’ a facilitator leading the circle told students. ‘You know when you grieve you have that denial, ‘How could this happen, I can’t believe this,’ you know, some of us said in that anger, or sadness, mourning, whatever, that overwhelming feeling that we’re having. Many of us want to do is, okay, now what? We couldn’t believe it happened, but it happened. I think it’s safe to say he’s not going anywhere.’
After explaining that the healing circle was a ‘safe space’ for those who may not feel comfortable expressing their grief over the upcoming Trump administration elsewhere, the facilitator went on to quote what Obama told his daughters upon hearing the results of the election:
