A Prayer for Our New President

I'm a child of the Sixties, and as such, I have a hidden fear of optimism, having seen JFK, Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy shot down. But this week I have dared to hope again. Seeing our nation represented by millions of well wishers on the Mall today, smiles beaming, tears of joy falling, I watched with my heart swelling in happiness. Could it be? I do believe my beloved country has grown up. We can embrace a great leader who represents us all, and put the pettiness of racial politics behind us.

They say there are no atheists in foxholes. Today, agnostic that I am, I found myself praying to keep our new president safe, and give our country a chance to rebuild and come together.

God bless us, every one.
