But all wasn't bad; some good also happened and among the positive things to derive hope from is Jewell Jones.
The University of Michigan-Dearborn student made history yet again. Last year, Jones became the youngest person to be sworn in as a member of the Inkster City Council at age 20.
And this year, the 21-year-old politician was elected for a Michigan Senate representative seat. He garnered 66% of the votes, beating out his opponent Robert Pope. The seat had been vacated following the sudden death of former Representative Julie Plewacki earlier this year.
"You and I made history, yet again,” Jones congratulated his followers on his Facebook page following Tuesday's win.
Currently, Jones is pursuing a political science and finance double-major at University of Michigan-Dearborn.
