Well, there you have it.

After eighteen months (or more) of dogfighting, mudslinging, verbal punching and sparring, we have a new president.

I think we should all begin to pray for our President-Elect. He's going to need a lot of help to do what's right for this country.

God bless America!


  1. Yesterday, my teacher had us say a rosary for the election, and somebody offered that we pray for Obama as well. We did.
    It seems that we've been praying for McCain & Palin all this time, but have we actually been praying for Obama?
    It has become so much more obvious that we must.

  2. I have to admit I've been praying for him all along. Mostly because I feared that some extremist might take it upon himself to do harm to him or his family. (I still fear that.) We have to pray for the whole family, the new First Family, because the girls are young, and this is a huge new road they are on.

    If your man was McCain, then we must do as he asked and support Obama. He is our president elect, and let's show the other side that we are bigger than they are by keeping up a positive attitude, having hope and joy in the knowledge that God is in charge of this nation.

    One of the things I hated over the past four years is all the Bush bashing. I've seen signatures on the bottoms of emails that say something like "Hang in there America, only (changing number of days) till Bush is out" or quoting various negative things Bush might have said. That's little. Let's be big and not do that. Let's have hope that maybe he really can get us out of the economic mess. Let's have hope that he'll make positive changes in Washington because I think we all agree that things need fixing.

  3. Maybe we should not put our hopes in a system which sees that "fixing" things is to do things bigger with the centralized government.

    We need Distributism, badly, and that is achieved from the bottom-up. We cannot fix the economy until we fix ourselves.

    Small is indeed beautiful, and where real change can happen, and has meaning.

    Long Live (the proverbial) Nicaragua! for "...Nicaragua is an idea" (Quote from the Napoleon of Notting Hill, by GKC).
