Music:"Hail to the Chief" -Sir Walter Scott and James Sanderson
Election Day 2008
Let us remember that today is the making of history. Yes, we have voted into office our first African-American President of the United States of America. More importantly though, the nation, as a whole, is now taking its first steps into a period of transition. This transition will be one of the most remarkable changes our nation has made for generations. The face of our country will never be the same. However, we will not know what that change will look like before it happens. Let us remember that, regardless of who we voted for, we are Americans. We have all chosen. Now is the time to act. I do not believe in blindly following whoever is in charge, but I believe in supporting and encouraging that leader to make the right decisions and the right judgements. We are Americans. Let us remember that always. Remember that what makes us American is not who we voted for, but how we act come the day after. We are the People of the United States of America. Let us remember that always. Our President now needs us to help him serve the nation to the best of his abilities and to the best of ours. Regardless of who you voted for, he is now our President.
God bless Barack Obama, elected 44th President of the United States of America. May he guide the People in wisdom and in truth. May we guide him in righteousness and integrity. And may the world be impacted for the better from our pursuits.
