While one half of the country rejoices over Donald Trump’s presidential win, the other half is seemingly shocked and upset. As many celebrities take to social media to express their bewilderment about the political outcome, actor and activist Jesse Williams took to Twitter to offer words of encouragement to anyone feeling weary.
Be tired. Be mad. Be honest & concerned. But be not afraid. Rest up. Be safe. Come together. Construct. Know your surroundings. Be creative.

The Grey’s Anatomy actor has become known just as much for his talents on-screen as his ability to galvanize an audience as seen as his impassioned speech at this year’s BET Awards. Williams words, despite the gloom some voters are in, cut through and resonated with some.
@iJesseWilliams I love you so much for this. Hard to be optimistic at all right now but these words are assuring.
