I hope everyone in the U.S.A. has remembered to VOTE today! It is a privilege and an honor to be part of this great country's elective process, and I have supported each President who has been elected, whether I voted for him or not.
I'd like to share this prayer that President Dwight D. Eisenhower penned for his inauguration, as its message holds true for today:
An Inaugural Prayer
"Almighty God, we beseech that Thou will make full and complete our dedication to the service of the people everywhere.
Give us, we pray, the power to discern clearly right from wrong, and allow all our words and actions to be governed thereby, and by the laws of this land. Especially we pray that our concern shall be for all the people regardless of station, race or calling.
May cooperation be permitted and be the mutual aim of those who, under the concepts of our Constitution, hold to differing political faiths; so that all may work for the good of our beloved country and Thy glory. Amen"
And as President John F. Kennedy said:
"... let us go forth to lead the land we love. asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own."
