At work yesterday, I tuned into the news in time to see our 45th President sworn in. It was a dreary weather day (in D.C.) and aside from protestors who chose to vandalize businesses and personal property, along with a burned limo, the transition of one leader to the next was peaceful. What a glorious country we live in for this to happen without a coup or rebellion. And those protestors? Idiots.
Our choices were horrific, let’s face it. However, let’s also realize that this IS our President (at least for the next 4 years barring any idiotic or illegal moves on his part) and we all need to move on. Our country is screaming for change in so many areas. That was President Obama’s platform: Change. That is President Trump’s platform: Change back to greatness. However, you slice it, we have some sprucing up to do, America.
President Trump gave a rousing (to the people) and scolding (to the politicians) speech with some pretty tremendous promises, but it seems that is what politicians have always done. Time will tell what he will actually be able to do. Time will tell.
Like it or not, let’s all pray for our President, our country and one another. And if you haven’t seen this video from Peter’s Boat, it is worth a view…..we are called to love our neighbor. All of them. It starts with us if we are truly going to make America great again. As for me….I’m proud of our country, but my allegiance is to God.
