Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Jennifer Lawrence’s “The Hunger Games” role is the epitome of a woman going against a government that represses its citizens and it seems that the actress is emulating her role in order to let Americans have hope despite the victory of Donald Trump.

The Oscar winner wrote the open letter and was published by Vice. She asked the readers if the victory is the stark reality and that it does not matter how hard one works or how qualified one is because at the end of the day, if you are not a man, you will not be able to win the elections.

She added that the United States was founded on immigration but today, she believes that the only people “that feel safe, that their rights are recognized and respected are white men.”

Despite the emotional portion of Lawrence’s letter questioning what happened, she said that the only thing she could advise is that people have to have hope and not let the victory of the GOP nominee defeat the people. In fact, Lawrence asked her readers to be enraged with the win of Trump and let it be used as a fire that one did not have before.

Lawrence went on to say that she wants to be positive and support the democracy of the United States but there is no one to blame. She also said there should be no riots or protests as Americans should strongly think about what to do next because the past can no longer be changed. She also said that people are allowed to be sad but they should not feel defeated.

Another excerpt from her letter reads: “If you’re worried about the health of our planet, find out everything you can about how to protect it. If you’re worried about racial violence love your neighbor more than you’ve ever tried to before — no matter what they believe or who they voted for. If you’re afraid of a wall putting us all into another recession then organize and stand against it. If you’re a woman and you’re worried that no matter how hard you work or how much you learn, there will always be a glass ceiling, then I don’t really know what to say. I don’t know what I would tell my daughter if I were you. Except to have hope. To work for the future.”

Trump has not yet commented on this.
