A New Beginning
What can I say that hasn't already been said in the last week? Things have gotten so bad under the current administration that I vowed to move out of the country if we had to endure four more years of Republican rule. It's not even that I am so liberal that I would be upset if a Republican won- what upsets me is what the party has become. They seem to have lost focus of their core values and are more interested in doing whatever is necessary to gain power. I sincerely do hope they take this opportunity as a time of reflection to remind themselves of what is important to them and find the conviction in their beliefs that they seem to have lost along the way.
As far as the history that occurred last Tuesday, well it just tickles me pink. I feel like I just breathed a sigh of relief that I have been holding in for the last eight years. How refreshing and invigorating to have a new president, one that holds the same ideals I do. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like he genuinely has the good of the country in mind. I truly believe in him and I am so happy to be an American. I haven't been able to say that for a while.
