I did not vote for him, but from this day forward I am commanded by scripture to pray for him and by civic duty to serve him. I did not vote for him, but today I am truly honored to see Barrack Obama take the reins of government.
Our country has broken down a barrier, a vast divide has vanished. We stand together, resolved that our God given rights to freedom and human dignity, have finally been demonstrated by our nation for the rest of the world to see. The issue that left our founding fathers divided and sparked a Civil War nearly a century later has finally arrived at the pinnacle of American public life. The issue that left us wounded and heartbroken as nation confronting the ugly face of bigotry and discrimination has given birth to a new level of freedom that only repentance and reconciliation can give.
The words of Dr. King echo in my heart… His dream has now become our dream that the content of a person’s character is much more important that the color of their skin. Today I am honored to be an American. Today, I savor this moment in American history.
There is no doubt that 20 years from now we will tell our great grand children about this point in America’s history and where we were the day the world changed when Barrack Obama places is left hand on the Bible and raises his right hand taking the oath of office.
