Trust children to out do us all, in their reactions to the news that Hillary Clinton would not become the first female President of the United States of America.
On Thursday evening, children took to the streets of New York to draw adorable messages of love, hope and gratitude to the former Democratic presidential candidate, outside her campaign headquarters in Brooklyn.
Their weapon of choice for spreading some love? Pieces of colourful chalk.
Notes included 'Black Lives Matter,' Clinton's phrase 'Love Trumps Hate', the popular hashtag '#I'mWithHer', 'Keep up the good work', 'Hillary is loved' and 'Thank you Hillary'.
Scribbles of pink hears dotted the pavements as families and children joined together in respect and admiration for Clinton.
Elsewhere in New York, Clinton's supporters are being offered 'Subway therapy' at 14th St where commuters are being handed Post-it notes, pens and a desk to turn the tiles of the underground into a board expressing messages of hopes, concerns and sadness since they learned of Trump's victory.
Messages – of which there are currently more than 1,500 – vary from 'these notes give me hope' and 'therapeutic, helpful, cathartic' to 'how can this happen?' and 'stay strong New York'.
Remember that love is the best ammunition in times of difficulty.
