Yesterday was a day of triumph for half of America. It was also a day of disappointment for the other half. That's the way a democracy works - there are winners and losers.
If your candidate won, good for you. If your candidate lost, well you'll have to wait four years and try again. However, we can all be winners by backing those the electorate placed in office. Rhetoric like, "He's not my president. I didn't vote for her," speak of picking sour grapes. I don't mind when some people lose, but I don't ever want to be called a "sore loser."
Tuesday we drew lines in the sand. We argued and pushed for our favorite political figure. Today we are all Americans, working for the same goals of bringing every man, woman and child into the giant family we call America. To build our infrastructure and see to it that America is that lighthouse of freedom and opportunity for all the world to see and emulate.
We now will move on. We will be watching to see how a new administration will handle the plethora of problems facing this country. In a few months we will say goodbye to our sitting president and pray for their welfare and the future of their family. And most of all, we will prayer for our new leader that God will follow him in every decision and deliberation. And we will go about our business and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
