I was all set to write a nastygram about people who have been divisive in their comments and in their blogs with talk about "YOUR" America and "MY" America that grates on the one nerve I have left and is hanging on by a thread for dear life after this long and brutal campaign.
However, I stopped by and visited my conservative friend Hillbilly Willy's blog a bit ago and changed my mind. I figure if a diehard Republican like Willy can remember his convictions and state that he will do as the Bible exhorts us: "pray for and support one's leaders", so can an Independent like lil' old me. And I joined him in this wholeheartedly. Whoever wins today is going to need our prayers and support as he's inheriting a genuine bona fide mess.
Neither of us is a saint. Willy says he'll rant if the new leader messes up as I will holler and stomp my soapbox (if it ever gets back from the shop).
The bottom line is we are all Americans and this is OUR country and it behooves us to come together to make this country a better place. It might sound trite but united we stand and divided we fall. I believe that.
This campaign is has gotten a lot of people involved who had never done so before and keeping that momentum and commitment going would a good thing. If we work together we can accomplish miracles. And if we keep an eye on the people who are supposed to take care of us in Washington, we can accomplish our goals and build a better America.
My prayer is that whoever wins keeps in mind that ALL of us are citizens and deserve the best we can manage in solving the problems we're facing and that a gracious God is good to us!
God Bless America!
