Spoke with my friend on the train from Spokane to Seattle. We were talking about Trump’s inauguration and how it’s all a joke. I’m thinking about how we’re going to get out of here if we’re not careful.

Spoke to a coworker who works in the White House press office and said they have been told to be careful.

She told me to call my mother.

It’s been a week now, and she hasn’t heard from me.

I call her every day, but she’s never heard from her.

The whole time, it’s been quiet.

I am afraid to go anywhere in the city and I’ve been afraid to take a cab in the past week.

I have friends in Spokane, but they don’t think it’s worth the risk.

I think it would be better if I moved.

It is my job, and I can’t just walk away.

I just feel like I have to make sure my family is OK.
