United we stand

At last our country can once again become the United States of America, not the divided States of America. Revival has come, not through a revolution, but through the people, in the way we have believed in throughout our history: democracy, by and for the people.

I believe this is just the beginning of a change toward grace instead of violence, of love, instead of hatred, of acceptance of ourselves and others. A step has been made toward realizing that our differences are what unite us, not divide us.

I believe the people have spoken across the board. We have spoken – enough is enough – of divisiveness and fear tactics that have divided us.

Our survival as a nation has been threatened. But now, by the grace of God, we will open our hearts and minds to Him and one another. Hopefully we will move on to become what Martin Luther King prophesied in his dream for America so many years ago.
