Whether you supported Barak Obama or not you have to admit -this is an historic day for our country. I have heard a lot of people express genuine concern and fears for the future of our nation and way of life - sometimes expressed becaused of the election, but also because of the general state of things in this world.
I would just like to say that optimism is a good thing to have and really, when it gets down to it, that's all we have control over anyway--our own attitudes.
So whether your candidate won or not, whether certain issues were decided in your favor or not, it is still a wonderful world we live in. We have many blessings to be thankful for, and hopefully many days ahead of us to look forward to.
