Last night Joey and I felt very sad...sad for our nation and the choices it is making. I definitely feel now more than ever that these are the last days. We voted for who we felt was the better choice. We did our part and thats all we could do. Now it is time to move forward and continue to do what we can to keep America the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave."
I read this quote on my friend, Tib's, blog this morning and I agree 100% with it:
"Barack Obama was not my choice, but he is my president(elect). That is true of all Americans. For the last eight years, there has been an ongoing campaign of destruction meant to handicap and hobble the last president. I refuse to be part of an effort to do the same to the next president. Those who didn't vote for Barack Obama must set a higher standard of civility and citizenship than those who didn't vote for George W. Bush. In defeat, there must still be nobility.The last eight years have taught us what happens when you set out to destroy a presidency for political gain. You help your candidate, but you hurt your country. That pattern must not be followed with this new president. America must treat Barack Obama better than he treated George W. Bush." Bob Lonsberry
I too pledge to be kinder to Obama than his party was to Bush. Though he wasn't my choice for President and as much as it bothers me, he won. After he is sworn in, he will be the new President of the United States. We have been taught to honor and respect the leaders of our country and I plan on doing so. This doesn't mean I agree with his values, his ideas or choices. I do not and will not. I will just pray that this country will continue to be blessed and that he will be guided to make better choices than what I am expecting. And mostly, that U.S. citizens will keep God part of this country. Too many people are trying to push Him out. He is the foundation from which this great nation was built. If we keep Him center, our country will be protected and blessed. I hope we always remain "One Nation Under God."
