We can …
… have a new beginning.
… overcome obstacles.
… narrow the gap between peoples.
… care for our children, and those of the world.
… find new power to fuel our future.
… become better stewards of the land.
… find hope and renewal.
I’ve always had strong feelings about political issues and enjoyed debating such things. And I have found myself angry or passionate when discussing them. But today I found myself deeply moved and actually tearful. I’m not sure why my emotions were so heightened. Perhaps it is my age, perhaps motherhood, perhaps the stage of my life. Regardless, as I watched the babes wiggle on the floor, a young man pledged to faithfully discharge the duties of President. And I found hope for the future for all of us. A future of which we can be proud.
Let us all vow to rededicate ourselves to caring for one another and our planet. Let us vow to be good citizens of this world.
