Today I decided to fly the American flag at my house to celebrate the office of President of the United States of America. In this country we have a remarkable pattern of peacefully transferring power from one president to another. This election was very contentions and divisive and for all that love America I would venture to guess it was saddening and painful in many respects.
However, as we watch the Inauguration of Donald Trump today we should choose to honor the office of the President regardless of our political leanings. Regardless of who we voted for or what we believe to be the correct direction for this country we should remember that the office of President of the United States is one that deserves respect. It is due that respect from the citizens of the country and especially from the person that holds the office.
I did not vote for Trump and I am deeply concerned about the direction he may take our country. Today I hope that we will commit ourselves to doing our all to ensure that this country goes in the right direction. We should choose to do all that we individually can to contribute to this great country and remember that the President is first the servant of the people that elected him.
