Congratulations to President elect Barak Hussein Obama.
I believe in gracious losing--in defeat that results when you fight the good fight and still come up short. Losses tend to teach us more than victories so I will be paying attention to the things I can gain rather than dwell on what I feel we might have lost. I believe in an America where we walk free to vote and choose. I know that all of life is about living with the choices we make the best we can. I believe in the inherent goodness of people despite all the madness and despair. I have faith in God who watches over all of us, and who is with us most when we feel Him least.
I hope that all the people who supported Obama get the change they were hoping for, that they were promised. He hid a lot of who he is, but he clearly spelled out his plans (change) for America--and no one should be surprised when he puts those plans into action. I hope some day I can see in him all the things his supporters see in him. He can talk a good talk, but actions speak much louder than words. I will be watching.
There is no going back, only moving forward.
Life goes on.
