UK Lexit: Let's not be Arrogant?

I feel a certain degree of guilt about voting for Lexit in the coming June.
I think anyone voting to leave the EU should feel guilty; not because we are doing anything wrong, but because we are committing an act of creative destruction.
By all means vote 'Out' if you want; I will too... but I hate the thought of people voting with the flippant buoyancy of UKIP and others.
Whatever the result of the referendum is, it will be a tragedy.
Whatever we all vote as individuals, let's take it seriously, and pursue it to the bitter end.
There is no right way to vote in June, but in my opinion, it is worth seeking the less imperfect option.
There are strong rationales for 'In' and 'Out' alike, but I'm going for dreams over 'reality.'
Dreams are real too; they are reality in potential, the chrysalis of a better future.
But the road ahead is long and hard, and I will be shedding tears, as much within as without.
