“Many in our community, and among us, are waking up with fear…”
Virginia Tech is among the many colleges pampering students who are traumatized by our electoral process. This is what comes from giving everyone a trophy.
Virginia Tech Offers Emotional Support, Safe Spaces for Students After Election
Donald Trump shocked the world by winning the presidential election, stunning the media and those in the political establishment with his victory. The day after, both Hillary Clinton and President Obama acknowledged the defeat and called for Americans to come together in support of the new President.
Virginia Tech, however, seems to think it’s students will need some extra hugs to help with that.
An email was allegedly sent out to all Tech students on Wednesday afternoon by a staff member with the title “Support & Community Today.” Shared on Twitter by Virginia State Senator Mark Obenshain, the email offered locations to community centers for students who might not be able to handle their emotions.
“Many in our community, and among us, are waking up with fear, anxiety, concern, questions, and confusion among many other emotions,” the email starts out, going on to praise the “Hokie community” but lamenting that “not every member of our community has felt they belong. And today, this may feel almost insurmountable.”
Crazy email sent to VT students today. I bet they weren’t planning to send if HRC won! Really needed to go to faculty pic.twitter.com/AECyxTdA9V
