13. I don't blame you.

I have been very happy living in Toronto, because I LOVE this city. That was the overriding factor in deciding to stay here, rather than go back to my native NY. Being in Canada had little to do with it - being in Toronto was the big draw.

Of course, I have always been grateful for the healthcare here - but it still wasn't THE reason for staying.

With Trump's election, that has changed. I am no longer just grateful for being in a city I love - I am grateful for being in this country.

But be advised that you can never escape your ties to the US. Although I feel safe from Trump's madness here, I still lose sleep over what can or will happen to my country and my countrymen. I still worry endlessly over my friends and relatives still living in the States. Watching the destruction from a distance is better than living in the eye of the storm - but you still feel its effects no matter where you are.

That being said, Godspeed.
