A Defining Moment

Posted on November 05, 2008

Two wonderful speeches last night…

McCain’s words brought tears to my eyes as I watched this hero concede in a most honorable and gentle manner. I believe the world looked at him with admiration and the utmost respect which few people have ever deserved more..

Obama’s speech inspired a nation. I was equally proud of his accomplishment, the obvious emotion as he expressed so eloquently his awareness of the place in history that he alone can claim. America’s healing can now begin.

Now, let’s get back to the order of business…Let’s support one another and look ahead with hope and courage to the challenges that lie ahead…Let’s seek out the things we have in common rather than the things that set us apart.
