Post Elections Syndrome - December 3, 2011

Dealing with grief or loss usually follows 4 main stages (they are now up to 7 but we don't really need that at the moment): 1. Denial 2. Anger 3. Depression 4. Acceptance and Hope.. One can argue that we have all passed through these stages since the first Referendum when most of us got the shock of our lives when the No vote came out with a measly 23%.. This process is ongoing as news of the preliminary victory of Islamists in Phase I is coming out, again with the same percentage of 77%.. Many of us are hovering between the anger and depression stages, and hardly anyone reached the acceptance and hope; some argue we might never do..
