I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Last night we in the United States celebrated our hard-won freedom and right to vote for our elected government.
I haven’t seen my co-workers or my Facebook friends or my Twitter feed so worked up and divided in a really, really long time. Possibly since the last election.
The great thing, the incredible thing, is that we all, as citizens of this great country, have freedom to voice our opinions, to lobby for the agendas that are important to us, and to work tirelessly toward that great ideal of what our nation can be, what our lives can be, for ourselves and for our families.
We get to have a say. There is so much freedom and power in that.
Today about half the country mourned their loss, and the other half celebrated. Emotions were still running high as final votes were being counted. But we’ve been divided long enough.
At the end of the day, it’s not us versus them. It’s not who lost or who won. We voiced our opinions, and we cast our vote. Let’s get back to work.
