I Love America

I just watched the concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It is part of the inaugural celebration for president elect Barack Obama and I was humbled. The collection of stars was incredible. Bruce Springsteen, Cheryl Crow, Beyonce, Martin Luther King Jr., Tom Hanks, Samuel Jackson, U2, Garth Brooks, Pete Segar, Stevie Wonder, and so many other's it's hard to remember them all.
But it wasn't the all star lineup that moved me, but the expression on the faces of the the crowd. The kids. The old folks. The people who have traveled from the corners of America to be a part of history in the making.
We live in the greatest country in the world. Our people are remarkable. We seldom totally agree on anything. But a country where differing views are accepted....or to say it more clearly..... welcomed, is remarkable.
I am not naive. I know the next several years will be difficult for us all. But we are at our best, when the chips are down.
My prayer for this country is that we all take responsibility for where we are, and do our part to take us where we need to be.


  1. Yes, accepting personal responsibility is key.

  2. This is a big day in the history of the United States. In these difficult times the way ahead won't be an easy one. I can only wish you all a brighter future along a new and better path to solving old problems.
