The Day After

January 21, 2009

Well, the party is over.  We have a new president.  Many people are filled with hope and excitement for the future.  Today is President Obama’s first day on the job and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for us.  He ran a good campaign.  He gives great speeches.  We will see if he can truly govern.

What I am impressed with, is that this country has had eight years of political turmoil.  There has been negative press ever since the Supreme Court finalized the election eight years ago.  The bitterness and anger has rumbled throughout our country with ever increasing clamor.

However, it did not turn to bloodshed.  There was no violent uprising.  There were no shots fired in our land for political reasons.  No one was arrested for expressing their views on the government.  The turmoil was expressed in print and voice.  Our country has survived a rocky transition of political power.  The Democrats are now in charge. 

I encourage all Americans of faith to pray for America, to pray for our leadership, and to seek to work together for the greater good.

The party is over.  The work begins.
