“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln
Today we await the transfer of power as one president leaves office and another takes the oath to honor the constitution of the United States. It should be a smooth transition, however this election has stirred emotions that run the gamut of human existence.
There are those who resist, protest and continue to complain about the results of that election. There are those who will continue with that attitude for a long time after. It’s now time for us to focus on a country that needs help in so many ways. It’s time to set aside our differences, our anxiety, our depression, our desires. When we place our thoughts on things that effect is personally, we are not only succumbing to the “me” society of today, but we’re losing what’s really important.
Our new president will face the same difficulties that the old one did. There will be bad press, fake news, scandal and more. However, the business of government should be considered a business. Our country needs a leader that knows how to run a business and we now have one. Let him show us what he’s got. He was, after all, elected by the majority. There was a reason for that.
Dear, God, I pray for our presidents – past and future. They are your representatives in our country. Without them there would be no order. You have set up governing bodies for just that purpose. Help our nation to come together, rather than pulling apart. Don’t let feelings get in the way of reconstruction. Keep us on a steady path and be with this nation once again. There are still many here that trust in your name and your involvement in our government. I pray with sincere hope that we will again become the UNITED states. Amen!
