President Obama

Well, I can't say that I am surprised with tonight's outcome, or excessively overjoyed. However, I did listen to President Obama's victory speech a few minutes ago and felt emotional as he spoke of our country and our legacy of freedom. Tears came as I heard all the things I long to hear, promises and assurances, coming from a man I am not sure can deliver. I hope to be proved wrong. I thought it was powerful when he reminded the American people that we are in the driver's seat. We must help realize our own destiny. I completely agree and pray that we are up to the challenge. I still have numerous worries, mostly concerning the moral issues of life and marriage, and the issues of national security and terrorism, but I can still be hopeful that other issues such as our failing economy will be able to be resolved. My prayers are with President Obama as I recognize that the office of President of the United States of America carries no small responsibility indeed. Congrats to the Obama contingency. I can feel your elation and I am honored right along with you to witness this historic event! Long live the USA!
