United Around Obama

Some things to keep in mind . . .

- about 65 million Americans voted for Obama for President; that works out to about 22% of the US population
- about 60 million Americans voted for someone else besides Obama for President
- about 100 million eligible voters in the US were so inspired that they didn't even care enough to go the polls on election day

A country united around one individual?

May we be careful not to fall for the cult of personality (created in large part by the media in this case) -- in any sphere of life. May we keep our heads about us, when everyone else seems to be losing theirs.

May we remember our principles. May we "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness."

United around Obama? Careful.
