Oh, What a Night!

Our country has spoken. We have a new leader. I hope this sends a message to the world that the policies of George Bush didn't reflect the heart of many of the American people. I hope the message goes out that we want peace and to be part of the solution to global problems. I hope those who voted for McCain or another will give our new president a chance and their support. We have an opportunity to join together and make a difference if we can put our differences aside and think and do what is best for our country on the grand scale and not break things down to whether you're a Republican or Democrat.

I'm 59 years old and honestly did not think I would see a black man become President in my life time. Tonight I am very proud of the election results and I'm grateful that I'm here for the ride of change. This victory is going to enable all of us to make positive changes in our lives and our attitudes. I pray that President Elect Obama will surround himself the the brightest, most talented and knowledgeable people available to aid and support him. I pray that Republicans and Democrats will honestly put the people and country before their own agendas.

God bless America.

Mr. Obama was not my choice, but I have, and will continue to do so, pray daily for his success and safety and am going to support him 100% (unless it goes against the Bible)
