The note, found online and shared by Berlanti was written by a father to his son, Jack:

Dear Jack,

Trump won. Don’t panic. The world won’t end. The country won’t fall apart.

We’re just underdogs now, caring about women, minorities, democracy and truth.

You’re going to have a job now: Be extra moral. Rebel against meanness. Be kind. Heal things. Inspire people with optimism.

Most of all, LOVE.
-Dad

Berlanti also added his own words in the caption:

We are all blessed to live in a beautiful country that many people have had to fight and die for to make more perfect.

No matter how upset you may be today, or elated: Never stop fighting and always stay hopeful.
