Big changes on the horizon

Last post was on election day. I have been very busy sewing & haven't got to the computer to comment on the outcome. The country has voted for change and it's interesting to see where we have gotten to.

In 1968, Martin Luther King was fighting for civil rights for all people, every race. He was assassinated for this. People didn't feel that all races were created equal, nor should some of them even be recognized in any way other than less than human. Unfortunately, some people still feel this way. But America has come to a place where they have voted for their first African American President. It took 40 years to get here, which is sad that we are still so backward toward our fellow man that it never would have or could have happened before now. Barrack Obama won the popular vote as well as the electoral vote. People of America feel that he will bring the much needed changes to this country. We all hope & pray that this will be the case. We are in a big recession. The country is in trouble. We need a leader who will bring us back to where we need to be. I just hope everyone realizes we didn't get to this point overnight & it is not going to be fixed overnight. (I hope they realized this no matter who had been elected.) Now that it is said & done, let's hope this is the change America needs. Let's hope America made the right decision. Let's pray for President-elect Barrack Obama, & his family, that he will seek God in his decisions & that God will be with him.....And pray for The United States of America.
