When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Today is the inauguration of Barak Obama. The ceremony was moving, the mood was confident. I enjoyed President Obama’s speech and will remember the call for unity it contained.
I posted the following on another blog, but feel a need to repeat it here.
As President Obama said in his inaugural speech, “the time has come to set aside childish things.” We need to put away our grudges, our “petty grievances,” and choose “hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.” We as one people are challenged to go forward with confidence and power, united in our actions. I believe that all Americans need to come together as one unit and re-build this great country. I ask you all now, join me in welcoming our new President, Barak Obama. We can be assured that today is the start of a new era, a time that will be observed by other countries, let us show them our solidarity.
Until next time, God Bless You.
