Was America ready?
Ready for a change?
Ready for an African American in the Oval Office?
Ready to roll up their sleeves and get back to work?
They have answered the first two a resounding YES.
Welcome Barack Obama. Congratulations.
Now it is time to deliver on the third. Time to get back to work. Time to stop worrying about will happen and get back to doing something. Change will happen if we all stop analyzing what could be, and just be doing something.
Tonight you will drink in the success as the victor. Tonight you will celebrate the slaying of your enemy. But tomorrow; tomorrow you must unite the country. You must bring both sides of the country, all races, all genders and all kinds together to do the hardest thing you will ever do. You will have to bring America back from rock bottom and do this by delivering on your promises.
American citizens; it is going to take a lot of work. There will be tears. There will be hardships. Change is hard. However, the free world will support you if you all stand next to us and stand up as the leaders of the free world to say that you too will sweat for the betterment of your country and thus, the free world.
The gravy train is over. America the beautiful is now America with open wounds and terrible flaws. What will you do to bring your team back to the front?
Today is a brand new day, one with new hope, and one that we know everyone walks into with a little trepidation.
Welcome Mr. President. Now go deliver on that promise of change. Swim up stream. Swim hard.
We support you.
