. . . . . . . . . . . . The morning after. . . . .
Now that inauguration day has come and gone, the real work begins. But first, I have a message for those of you who were unhappy about the election results and who are feeling angry, skeptical, or critical towards our new administration. I ask that you stop for a moment and think about the message that prevailed throughout this election process. Whether you agree with President Obama's 'politics and policies', can you not agree with the premise of nonpartisanship or if not that, can you agree with the concept of unity, of brotherhood, of the power of love of mankind, of the beauty of diversity, the concept of agreeing to disagree. It is so much easier to smile than to frown, to love than to hate, to compliment rather than criticize, to try to understand rather than judge. It is not a matter of sacrificing your principles, it is a matter of listening to others'. I pray that we can all move toward working together to make our country strong. God Bless America!
