Barack Obama is the President Elect of the United States in a historic and landslide vote. And because of the results, you are jubilant, despondent, or ambivalent.
One simple question: What do you think?
Please. Be respectful in your comments but I’d love to host a “dialogue” regarding your thoughts and feelings about the elections, Obama, the future, your hope, your concerns, etc. Consider this an OPEN MIC. Feel free to copy/paste your blog entries or your direct links.
One brief thought from me:
Congratulations to Barack Obama. Truly historic. Not being the most ga-ga supporter of Obama, I found myself crying like a baby particularly as I saw many adult African-Americans cry like babies.
I was listening to an interview of an African-American woman who spoke of what will take place on January 20, 2009 when Obama is sworn in as the President of the United States. He will be sworn in on the very steps of Capitol Hill that were built in part by the labor of black slaves. Just consider that for a few seconds.
Honestly, I don’t know what “changes” lie ahead but it is a new day in America. As Minhee and I prayed with our children tonight as we do each night before they go to sleep, we took several minutes to pray for Senator McCain and for President Barack Obama. Regardless of your political leanings, I hope that you’ll keep him and his family in prayer. God instructs His followers to pray for our leaders not because we are to blindly follow them but to simply convey that beyond our finite understanding, God remains in control.
