My Thoughts on Inauguration Day

Obama's Oath

I didn’t vote for Barack Obama but I can tell you that today I am celebrating a great historical moment in our nation. I have laughed, cried, and been in total awe watching the inaugural ceremony today. What a country we live in that on this day we watch an African American become president when it wasn’t too long ago that they could not be served in restaurants, sit in the front of the buses, or share the same water fountain as whites. I have thanked God so many times today for the progress this country has made. Are we there yet? Absolutely not, but thank God we’re not where we used to be!

I have been blessed to witness this historical event. I pray that he will lead this country in a new direction for the better. Today I celebrate President Barack Obama, I celebrate a great nation that has allowed an African American to be our president, and I celebrate our God for He is good and mighty!

On a side note, I thank God for former President George Bush. I believe he led us to the best of his ability. We all make mistakes, hind sight is 20/20, but that shouldn’t make him the scapegoat for the problems our country has been in. Responsibility falls on every one of us from the former president, to congress, both Republicans and Democrats alike, all the way down to each one of us personally. That’s my opinion anyway. Thank you former President Bush for protecting & defending  our country and for your dedication to our country over the last eight years. God Bless you.

God Bless President Barack Obama and

God Bless America!
