A Message to President-Elect Obama

Congratulations, Mr. President-Elect Obama. This may sound odd coming from someone who did not cast her vote in your favor, but I am truly happy for you and your role in history. How amazing that only 40 years after we were fighting segregation, our nation elects a man who happens to be African American to the highest office in the land. The significance of what happened yesterday—and the years leading up to it—is monumental.

I woke up this morning not with feelings of bitterness and ill-will, but with feelings of respect and dare I say—hope.

I hope you can unite this country as you vowed to in your acceptance speech.
I hope your plans and policies really can repair the economy.
I hope you really do want to listen to us who disagreed with you. I hope our values and opinions really do matter.
I hope you can protect our country from those who wish us harm.
I hope we are ALL better off with you in the White House.

I hope I find out I was wrong about you and your policies.

So even though my vote did not swing your way, I will hold my head high and do all I can to protect and support this country.

And that includes viewing the President of our great nation as a man of reverence who deserves our utmost respect. For as you said last night, we are the UNITED States of America.

God Bless the U.S.A.! And God Bless our President.
