I will be watching

In John Kerry’s concession speech he said “I pledge to do my part to try to bridge the partisan divide. I know this is a difficult time for my supporters, but I ask them, all of you, to join me in doing that”. Later in the day I listened to the President’s victory speech and was encouraged by what he said. President Bush said “I'm humbled by the trust and the confidence of my fellow citizens. With that trust comes a duty to serve all Americans”, and he also said “So today I want to speak to every person who voted for my opponent. To make this nation stronger and better, I will need your support and I will work to earn it. I will do all I can do to deserve your trust. A new term is a new opportunity to reach out to the whole nation. We have one country, one Constitution, and one future that binds us. And when we come together and work together, there is no limit to the greatness of America.”

These words give all Americans great hopes for our future, but they are only words. We all know that actions speak louder than words. Words are easy to come by; it is backing up those words with actions which is hard. I will take the president at his word and pray for the sake of the country that our President keeps his word.

P.S. I will be watching and you can watch with me
