I respect John McCain and all that he's given for this country. I hope that he truly means what he said in his very gracious concession speech. I hope he steps up to offer his help to our new president. Maybe they'll be able to put aside their differences and lead by that example. Then maybe we'll start to see some positive change.
Because our country is in crisis. There's a lot of work to be done. And all this division needs to stop. We all need to be united in our efforts to keep this great nation a place that we can be proud of.
"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of
red states and blue states.
We are, and always will be,
the United States of America."
~President Elect Barack Obama November 4, 2008
