The election of the century (so far) is over. Congratulations, President Obama. What an amazing acceptance speech. The president echoed what so many people have been talking about with our friends and in our homes; we need to stop keeping the country divided, and work on reaching out to one another to make America stronger. Regardless of what side you are on. This foolishness needs to end. The sour grapes should be tossed out the window.
We live in the greatest country in the world, and we should stop taking it for granted. I don't think some people realize how good we have it over here. The hateful tweets, facebook rants, etc are all part of freedom of speech that our country enjoys, but should NOT be a platform to continue to tear this country or our President down.
I am still on cloud nine after the election results, and I just want to hug everyone I see, whether they voted for Mitt Romney or not. After the giddiness settles down however, I know that there is so much work to be done to make sure that this country keeps moving in the right direction, and does not get mired in lingering attempts to derail the Presidents' agenda to keep out country going FORWARD.
I urge everyone to get involved in what is going on in your communities. Be diligent when you see something going on that needs to be fixed, stay active in the political process. Here's hoping our red state friends will meet us half way and turn our blue into purple states for all.
