Mark your calendars, everyone! November 8th is the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s election and if you’re still having trouble swallowing that reality, come to Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, or perhaps, somewhere near you, and scream your little head off.
Facebook invites have gone out for the upcoming event, titled, “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election,” and thousands of people are interested in attending in each of those cities. Nathan Wahl is organizing one in New Jersey to give people an outlet to join in a collective “primal scream” against the president. Wahl told Bustle:
"This is just about community — although 'just' is perhaps diminishing. Community is important. I think we're a bunch of exasperated people who want to feel connected.”
Wahl said the event will be “catharsis” and invited all to either, “Scream into a pillow alone in your room or scream into the ether with 1,000 people who feel just as angry and helpless as you.”
The event scheduled for Austin hopes:
Come join us as we lament the dreadful state of current affairs. If we yell loud enough, perhaps we can open up a rift in the space time continuum and hop onto a better timeline.
