I’m sitting in my office watching the inauguration of Donald Trump. I, like a lot of you, didn’t see this coming. Full disclosure, I didn’t vote for either of the front runners. However, despite all the animosity of an election year, I am pleased to see the peaceful transition of power in our amazing country. I’ve lived overseas and traveled a bit and I can honestly say this is the greatest country on earth (in my humble opinion).
We are not perfect, but we are always moving slowly in the right direction towards a more perfect union. I hope that President Trump does a great job. I hope he and his team get to work and really do “make America great.” But it’s not just his job…for us to be a great country, we need to be a great people, and, more specifically, great individuals. Each of us has been blessed with the freedom to choose what we do, think, and become. It is now incumbent on us to do our best to be the kind of individuals, families, and communities that will help make this country great.
You may think there is not much you can do, but that is not true. Even in our small circles of influence, we can be a force for great good. For it is by small and simple things that great things are brought to pass.
For at least the next four years President Trump (that’s going to take a while to sink in) is my president and our president.
God Bless America!
