Although I did not vote for Obama I want to send him my best wishes. Times are very difficult right now and I do not envy the position that he is in. I believe he is a patriot and that he truly does care about this country.
I encourage all who pray to pray for and ask God to bless our new leader. Surely we all want him to be strong and wise as he makes decisions that will affect not only you and me but the entire world.
It does my heart good to see so many of my black friends and neighbors feeling so encouraged and up lifted by this election. The day after the election it was so great to see so many people smiling and in a celebratory mood.
My experience with life tells me I find what I am looking for if I look for good it is there. I know Obama will make mistakes he is after all a human being. Will he be able to keep all of his campaign promises? Has there ever been a politician who did? Let us all be realistic.
