PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) - A Washington woman has started a Facebook page meant to help unite the country in the wake of Donald Trump's divisive election as president.

"It's not about politics and policies," said Molly Spence Sahebjami. "It's more about why it's important to be kind to others."

Sahebjami supported former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president. But she wants kids from all political sides to write positive letters to President-elect Trump.

"If he got bags and bags of letters from kids, he would see that those are everyday Americans who want to hold him to high standards of basic human kindness," said Sahebjami. "I would hope that he would be affected by that."

Sahebjami was critical of Trump's harsh rhetoric on the campaign trail. Now that he's been elected, she understands his supporters are feeling good. She hopes they can persuade the president-elect to unify the country.

"They don't want to be embarrassed by their candidate, by their president, by the person that they elected and are really rooting for," she said.
