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.
