America is the greatest country on earth. Our history is short compared to others but it's a wonderful one. Our freedom has been bought at a great price. Our freedom is our most prized possession. Many members of my family-as well as millions of others- fought and shed their blood to leave us this legacy.
One of the things that makes us what we are is the ability to choose and make that choice known. Yesterday the citizens of the USA spoke and elected a new president. President-elect Obama was not my choice but he is the choice of the majority. I accept that choice.
My job now is to work together with other Americans to continue to make this nation work for all our people. I will continue to pray for my country and to do all in my power to unite us. I would not be anywhere else on earth. I look forward to what is ahead.
God Bless America.
