This day will pass me by

This day gives me yet another reason for being glad I don't own a television. No doubt it will be non-stop inauguration updates.

Truth be told, if Ronald Reagan came back from his grave, I wouldn't want to hear about it non-stop. Although I'd definitely at least watch the evening news, because that would be truly historic ;)

I'm not going to grumble or complain. What's done is done. The people have spoken, and I can respect that. Not necessarily their choice, but the process. Whether you feel like you won or loss with this election, we still live in a great Democracy (albeit one that needs to seriously fix some things within itself, and I'm not talking about the economy here).

I love America. I love Freedom. Freedom to say what I think and feel. Freedom to believe as I wish to believe. Freedom to worship my God. Freedom to raise my children in the way I firmly believe it should be done.

No man, woman, political party, or terrorist can single-handedly take that away.

And so, although I will most definitely avoid all the fanfare, I will on the other hand take time to pray for my country; her people, and her newly sworn in (by days end) President.

May God who has smiled upon us in days long past still see fit to bless America.

Time for a new post

I have to say that the main reason I haven't posted on this blog in so long is because right now I prefer to be an ostrich with my head in the sand as far as politics goes. Have you ever felt like the only way you can deal with the stress from something is to completely ignore it? Well, that's just how I feel.

I have a sense of dread as the day approaches in which our next President will be sworn in. I couldn't care less what color he is, what charisma he possesses, ect. It's what he believes that truly worries me.

And I have to admit that I worry about our freedom of speech in the near future. Though I've never been aggressive or severe in my words, I'm still tempering what I do say.

I suppose some will think I'm simply crying wolf. Maybe so. I hope so.

But for now I simply don't want to think about it. The day will come soon enough.
