US once again is that shining city on top of the mountain! November 5, 2008

Posted by shaferfinancial in Uncategorized.

This blog is not a political forum for some very important reasons.  Even though its main focus is financial, I need to comment on what transpired yesterday.  I have been fortunate to have traveled all over the world and during my travels was always proud to be an American.  There were times, however, where I had to admit we had lost our way.  One year ago it did not seem possible that a man with the skin color of Obama could be elected to our highest office.  This morning, both friend and foe, woke up in awe of what the United States has done.  Once again the symbol that the US has been is one of hope and endless possibility.  Once again we are that shining city on top of the mountain.

Whether you voted for Obama or McCain or one of the other candidates, this morning you are part of a ongoing historical moment.  For at least a short time, let us all revel in the moment.  There will be time for critique and argument, that is democracy.  For now, allow the afterglow of possibility to shine.
