Inaugural Thoughts

Jean Sexton writes:

Today Mr. Obama will take the President's oath of office, "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." With that oath he assumes great responsibility. We can, without invoking political discussion, hope that the responsibilities that go with that oath are carried out in all honor. To live up to the expectations that are expressed in our Constitution is to live up to the best part of all citizens of the United States.

No matter what one believes in the way of politics, one should always hope that one's leader will be a person who will guide this grand country to a brighter future. No matter how one voted in the election, one should wish our President, our Commander in Chief, the very best of luck, the grace to lead our country well, the wisdom to make the best choices for our country, and the ability to rise above partisan politics and do what is right for our country.
