Trump-Clinton election battle left students with PTSD symptoms, study finds
Then we have a generation with absolutely no morals, logic, or worth.
How can that give you any trauma? I went through motherfucking cancer while looking after my mother who had cancer at the same time, and that was far worse in comparison, and life is too short to be whining.

What we have are people lying to themselves. They don’t actually have trauma. They have talked themselves into an artificial frenzy, and then become paralyzed with fake fear.

It is one thing to be vigilant and cautious, but another to give in to cowardice.
