Congratulations Mr. President

This is NOT to put down any one's opinions or beliefs. This is to merely celebrate the conclusion of all the political campaigns, name calling, mud slinging, and finger pointing. It's over: The people have spoken and the electoral college voted - President Barack Obama and his team have another four years to try to fix and RE-unite our Untied State Of America. It's frightening how divided we have become. It's seriously time to put aside our differences and work TOGETHER... before history starts to repeat itself in more ways than one - and NOT in a good way. 

Last night, Jeff had the TV on, and flipped back and forth between our regular channel ABC News and NBC at Rock Center. By far, the best coverage we saw was on NBC -- from the spectacular red & blue display at Rock Center to the red & blue map they created on the rink. It was also on NBC that I first heard Brian Williams say - "Ohio". Jeff had already gone to bed, and I was still watching the TV along with reading my twitter feed and occasional posts on Facebook. I yelled when I heard Ohio, but I also kept re-tweeting "#StayInLine" to those who were still in line (for HOURS) waiting to vote in Florida... and I also could not agree more with Mr. President: "We need to FIX that". Here in AZ, this state messed up too with early voting ballots, changing pole places, and this years hanging chad dilemma of "provisional ballots." 

"I've seen it on the shores of New Jersey and New York, where leaders from every party and level of government have swept aside their differences to help a community rebuild from the wreckage of a terrible storm."

"I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America."

These two quotes were from the transcripts of Barack Obama's speech last night. Read more:

 WE the people...

Is it going to be all rainbows and butterflies? NO - it's going to be a long road ahead, I'm sure that will be filled with plenty more ups and downs along the way. Like an old boss (Mr.C) use to say to me, "Take the emotion out of it." WE (in the USA) are all passionate about wanting to stop the downward spiral and to see light at the end of the tunnel - I think that WE can all agree on. Now it's time to take parts of Plan A and parts of Plan B and come up with Plan C.

The LONG road ahead...

And let's NOT lose focus...

But remember...

It's time...

 Prayers needed for everyone, regardless of which party you voted for.

Thank you for stopping by,

Note: Please do NOT leave negative comments. If you do not have something POSITIVE to say, move on. It's not that I'm being unfriendly, but there is more than enough negativity going around, and there are plenty of other places you can go vent... Even better: convert that negative energy into something positive and do something to help our fellow Americans in New York and New Jersey. Thank you.


  1. Excellent post! I lived in NY during 9/11 and the show of unity was inspiring, I hope we get some of that back.
