Wow, what a night...the anxiety of it all. I will say initially I was quite disappointed because I did vote for McCain. I do believe America is ready for change and that it will happen. I pray that our nation will be guided in the direction it needs to go. I am a proud American, I will support our President. I think history was made and I think that is awesome.
I will pray that our new Commander-in-Chief will remember those who protect the process who put him in that seat. I don't have false notions that my husband will be home any sooner or even that he won't go back, but that wasn't the basis of my vote. I am concerned about what our retirement package will be and how the military budget will be affected, but I will have faith that it will all work out.
Yes, change is good, it's progress, I look forward to seeing where the next four years will take us, both as a nation and personally for our family.
