Just been thinking

I have to admit, I was disappointed and a little scared when Obama was elected as president. As I've been dwelling on this, these are a few of my thoughts. Although he is not the man that I voted for he will still be our president. I think we all have to duty and obligation to support him as OUR president. We may not agree with his policies but we can still be patriots. Are we not all citizens of the UNITED States of America? This is in fact the greatest country in the world, if we reject it's leaders it will only cause a division among it's people. We can still make a difference in the world regardless of who is leading it. Live a good life, be a good example and influence those around you to do good. Raise a good family, our children are the leaders of tomorrow, raise them to be such. If you want to contribute to society do so by the choices you make everyday. I fear that a good person is greatly over looked. Think of the people that have changed your life. Mostly likely they are the people that have taught you how to be happy. We all know times are going to get harder, it’s been prophesied about for thousands of years. Living in fear is not going to solve anything. Fear stops us from making changes and making a difference. Faith causes us to achieve things we once thought to be impossible. Have faith that there is a great divine being, our father in heaven that knows who you are. He knows you by name, he knows your trials, and he knows what is to come. Follow him and we will have no reason to fear for he is in control.
