We have a new President. Thank God!
I am not easily moved to tears by public events, but when this superb man stepped forward to take our country’s reins with tens of thousands of people cheering him on, my eyes were smarting. What a phenomenal historic moment. Never did I expect to live long enough to see a Black man in the White House. Nor, I might add, did I expect ever to see another American President who bears the promise of greatness within him.
What a speaker! That he called for integrity, a return to American values, and cohesive responsibility was, for me, the most stirring message of his speech:”For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. What is required of us is a new era of responsibility.”
The challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America—they will be met!
Yes! Yes, we can.
