Today is the day..

Today is the day that you have to take a pause and think History has been made. There is a new president. You do not have to agree with all his politics or can you full fledgely agree with everything he says. But you can feel Pride in Our Nation, as I do. Pride that we can come together and vote and have a process where we voice our opinions and elect those in charge. Some countries deal with bloodshed and death over those in charge.

I have the tv on in the background and I cannot imagine the energy that there must be today in that crowd. I don't think the President alone can push us on the upswing. I think it comes down to all of us as well. He can guide it, but truly as it was up to all of us who vote. It is up to all of us to surge towards a better way. We are responsible for our destinies with our actions and our words. If all the smiling joyous faces that pass over my television screen is a testament to that then we will continue on as Americans. A Nation that when things get tough we help one another, we reach out our hands and support one another. We show what it means to be Proud to be an American.

One Nation under God, indivisible,
With Liberty and Justice for all.
God Bless our Troops, Our Families,
Our Leaders and
Those who Have come before them.
God Bless America.
