The embattled (now former) President Bush embraced the man that will next sit in the office and at the very desk in which he was forced to make more difficult decisions than we will ever comprehend. Though many disagree with the conclusions the ultimately reached, no one can deny that he loves his country, a country in which President Obama’s very success story was cultivated. The President’s address today was one of change and hope and looking ahead. He spoke to a country in crisis, weary and desperately seeking stability and guidance, and the world listened. Folks, our new President has an inconceivable weight on his shoulders now, and we should pray every day that he seek God’s wisdom and His will for our country. Godspeed, President Obama.
My personal fave quote of the Inauguration: “To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silence of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”
