A very sad day, today is.
Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.

The Day The Earth Stood Still
It was the day that so much could have been decided.
Pretending to be new and sleek vehicles, bloated and decaying parties added bizarre accoutrements hoping to attract voters, misemploying millions of precious dollars, and splaying sound bites like reverberating engine roars across a benumbed expanse of voters.
Issues of infrastructure: the dusty old highway that both cars sat on as well as crumbling water systems were left untouched. Fracking and pollution would continue unregulated. Real job creation, lack of living wages, and education were left to fallow.
The affected masses never showed up for the car show. The few that did cast their votes into a dry wind.
