My one political post

For those of you who have followed me on Facebook and/or Twitter, you will know how extraordinarily difficult it has been for me to keep politics off of this blog. But I have. Until now. So this will be my one, and only, political post on this blog.


I am proud beyond measure of this country. While I have some minor disappointments (what were you thinking up there in Minnesota's 6th congressional district? And California? Passing prop 8? I am stunned by the bigotry and intolerance showed by those two votes, but I digress) I am encouraged by the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States.


I encourage you to watch this:






It is inspiring and intelligent. It shows grace and tolerance, and a depth of understanding that this country sorely needs.


I will also say that Senator McCain's concession speech was a class act. I suggest that you also watch it.





His speech was gracious, and inspiring. The actions of his supporters, on the other hand, was disappointing and revolting. I hope that this country can move forward, heal the divisions, and allow President Obama to lead this country.

While I am inspired by President-Elect Obama, and encouraged by the hope of this nation, I am, as always, disappointed that there are people like Christine Distelhorst in this country, who say such things as these. Please, let's move forward. When you hear such hate-filled and ignorant speech, call it out into the light. If you are tempted to make such comments, think twice. Then think again.

Let's all remember that we are in this together. No more "us vs. them" please.
