Amid discord across the nation, one child was able to inspire when she used her tiny voice to spread love.
During a rally this week in Austin, Texas, a little girl garnered the attention of numerous adults who were protesting the election of Donald Trump.
Shouting in a call-and-repeat fashion with the crowd, the girl said, “I am a female. I am mixed race. I am a child.”
She continued — as supporters echoed her statements, “And I cannot vote. But that will not stop me. From getting heard.”
“Love is love. And love trumps hate,” she concluded as she was met with cheers.
The protest was one of many that sprung up in the wake of the election, including gatherings in New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and Atlanta.
In response, Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday, “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
Later, on Friday morning, he shared a different sentiment, tweeting, “Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!”
While demonstrations have been mostly peaceful, there were scattered arrests made in California and Chicago since Wednesday.
