A New Day

The election is over and the people have spoken. We have a President elect and the whole world is abuzz. Today there is electric in the air and even if your candidate didn't win, you can't help but feel the swell of excitement and anticipation.

Even those of us that are normally very happy little campers, were starting to feel doubt about what the future held for us, our country and the world. Today, much of the world is feeling hope and optimism.

If you are disappointed today, or sad or angry because your candidate didn't win....take a few days to console yourself and then it's time for all of us to come together and get to work. There is much to be done and it will take all of us to make it happen.

This isn't about who won or who lost. It is about the state of our great nation and the state of the world, and what we as everyday people can do to change things. We may not have a seat in Washington, but there is so much that we can do from our own cities and towns. So let's all roll up our sleeves and get to work. There is much to be done. Our new President will do his part, let's all do ours!

Hi Kathy -
I was wanting to say hello and ask a little favor (from the one who doesn't know how to blog). Could you tell me how you get your photos to be spaced around your blog post instead of lumped (like mine) all at the top? My last post has all of them at the top, and I can't seem to figure out how to move them.
Also, I read your last post and wanted to share that for each my children (19 and 20), this was their first presidential election, and it was thrilling for them. I can't imagine how they'll look back in years to come at the significance of this particular election!

Wow, this is SO well said! And I totally agree with you.

Since the election, I've felt true excitement and optimism regarding the future of our country.

I am so proud of all my fellow Americans who have made this strategic and history making presidential election outcome possible.

And I'm hopeful that the guidance and leadeship of our new President will take our great country once again in the right direction.
