I started the day with such hope, such fervor, such anticipation for what I felt was going to be an amazing history-making day. And it was.
But now I'm tired.
Because in the midst of all the joy that I feel due to the new page in our book of history, there is still an undercurrent among people that I love, of judgment, bitterness, and (in some cases) outright hatred. I'm tired of it people. Open your eyes and see, "There is more to heaven and earth... than is dreamt of in your philosophy." (Thanks to the master, Shakespeare, himself!)
I don't have all the answers (Thank GOD for that, yeah?). No one person does. NO one... including Obama. We will see where this country will go in the next four years. He will inevitably make mistakes. If he didn't, he wouldn't be human (and regardless what you may THINK you hear from his supporters and/or followers, he IS human)!
Here's the thing though. You may not agree with the man, but here are the facts:
- He IS the president of our country. As such he demands our respect, our support, and above all our prayers.
- He may be a supporter of freedom of choice in our country, but that does NOT make him heathen, a murderer, or any thing else that I've heard him called in an effort to vilify him. It just means that like all great leaders, he's able to look beyond one or two details and see a larger picture, one which most of the general public may NEVER be able to understand.
So, let's put away the hatred. Let's reserve judgement for God and God alone. And let's support our new leader, and strive to create the change that we so need and that he has promised to promote in this country.
This is Nean, signing off... I can't take anymore of this.
