I’m such a bad blogger…..I missed Muppet Monday and haven’t posted since the weekend. It has definitely been a crazy week and doesn’t look like it’s going to let up any time soon! Between my son’s playoff football game and the election last night, my nerves are shot. They won the game by the way….
I’m not a very politically charged person. I prefer not to discuss politics with friends and/or family however I still have my opinions and my preference for who I want leading my country. I won’t state here which side I am on because it is irrelevant. I simply wanted to comment on the statement made by Obama last night during his victory speech. He said “Arguments are a mark of our liberty”.
After months and weeks of reading hundreds of heated tweets, Facebook posts, news articles etc by members of both parties….I believe that statement couldn’t be more true. Regardless of your political stance — be grateful that you have the freedom to make these arguments! Be grateful that our ancestors before us suffered and died so that we may have this right….be grateful that you are allowed to make your voice heard.
Now, at this time more than ever before, everyone needs to come together and unite within this country — whether or not you agree with the election results — we still have a President and will have him for the next 4 years. If you are an American citizen, it goes without saying that you should support your President no matter who he is because he’s the only hope we have.
So the most “opinionated” statement I’m going to make here is a plea for everyone in this country to put their biases, preconceived notions, snide comments and personal pride on the sidelines and simply remember what election day is really all about — our freedom.
