Change has Arrived

What does the title of this post mean? Well, for every single American it means we are seeing huge changes happening in our country, in our social structure, and in our politics. Ok, so every four years we see a similar change, but not one as powerful and anticipated as the one witnessed by millions today.

First, our nation witnessed an extremely important and historic event...the inauguration of the first black president. To those who were there during the civil rights movement, to those who were there the day JFK was killed, to those who were there when MLK was killed, you have persevered in the biggest way possible and I, as an American, thank you!

Next, we have the opportunity to come together as a nation, one under God (whoever He is for you). There has been a lot of talk about the failure of President Bush's presidency over the past few weeks. Why do we need to look at the past and blast a man who stood up and faced the most difficult 8 years of his life? We need to look to the future.

The way I see it, President Bush did an incredible job while under extreme pressure. Eight months after taking office, President Bush faced the unthinkable and I am sure his political agenda changed in that moment. I hope that the new administration doesn't have to face such pressure.

I have visited the new website for the White House and signed up on the blog. I encourage my readers, regardless of their political views, to do the same.

Thank God and God Bless!
