As many know, I didn’t vote for our new president. That being said, I appreciate the historicity of Barack Obama’s inauguration today.
It seems unfathomable that less than half a century ago, he wouldn’t have been served at many restaurants; he would’ve had to sit in a special section on the bus; he would’ve had to drink from a separate water fountain. I think that MLK, Jr would be happy to see how far our country has come.
I want Barack Obama and his administration to be successful. I pray that, in four years, our country is in a better place financially than it is today. I pray that we are as safe or safer than we are today. I pray that our country becomes unified…not as democrats, republicans, African-American, Asian, Caucasian, men, women, but as Americans. This country has more than it’s share of problems. However, I love this crazy country.
Though I didn’t vote for President Obama, I vow to pray for him and his administration. That doesn’t mean that I won’t point out things that I find problematic. However, I vow to all of you to also point out things that I find excellent in his presidency.
Congratulations, Mr. President. Today, you’ve made history. God bless America.
