Like him or not he is our new President ... I pray that God grants him the wisdom and strength to lead our country down the right path.
Tonight when I voted I took my kids with me as we stood in line I talked to them about how great it was to be able to choose who we wanted to run our country and how other countries don't have that right. We talked briefly about how this election was unique in the fact that this was the first time we had a black presidential nominee. I told them how important it was to vote, that by not voting we were giving up our voice and letting others speak for us. After standing in line for an hour it was finally my turn to vote and my kids stood by side as they watched me picked my candidate. I hope I showed them how it important it was to vote and that when they are old enough will let their voice be heard and vote for who they want leading our country.
