As of last night, the next president of the United States of America is Barrack Obama. Not really what I was hoping for but good grief, how awesome was John McCain in his concession speech? My stomach was in knots for him as I realized the enormity of his responsibility. Not only was he surely devastated, but thousands of his supporters were as well. What could he possibly say to help them make sense of this and to keep them united in the cause that is our country. The country that he loves and that he has served so selflessly. I was dumbfounded as he spoke so eloquently and sincere. What a testament to the man that he is. While I am still feeling some disappointment in the outcome of the race, I realize there is no reason. It is what it is. And now I will go and do the only things I can do. Today I begin praying for the future leader of America and doing my best to make MY impact on this great country.
God Bless the USA!
And since this is a patriotic post...stop by THIS BLOG to see how you can give back in a small way to some of our soldiers. This was set up by the wife of a soldier who will be making his second tour to Iraq early next year. Pretty awesome!
