help us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right."
Seriously? And I heard it reported that Obama laughed at this. So funny...ha ha.
Like I said, I did a good job at losing myself in the moment...but once the moment was over, I got over it. It really hit me just what happened today. A pro-abortion president was sworn into office. He gave an inauguration address about how we would make nice with the rest of the world again. He said a few things where he tried to sound real tough and scary to help us think we might not need to worry about national security. But as I watched, my eyes full of tears, President Bush and his family fly off, I suddenly became afraid. We have been safe since 9/11 and with Bush in charge I never worried. I am worried now. I do not feel safe. None of us are safe. Other countries know he is more worried about our popularity than our safety.
And then all of those poor people out there who were so excited, dancing and crying - they think that this man is the answer to everything. That he will pay for their cars and their homes. They are in for such a disappointment. He may do some good things but there is no way he can live up to all of their expectations. He is human, our government is made up of humans. Nothing is ever perfect. Nothing ever can be.
I pray for our new president. I like Julie's post with a link to another post about being part of the "loyal opposition". I hope for the best but am going to be realistic in my expectations. But especially, I pray for the lives of the unborn, the men and the women who will be forever changed if FOCA, God forbid, is passed.
