A New Chapter in America


The page turns today at about Noon, Eastern Standard Time, as  President-elect Trump becomes the 45th President and the 44th President becomes former-President Obama. 


President Obama at his final news conference
It is very exciting. There is a lot of trepidation in many areas of the country, but much like four years ago, this transition should be a cause for celebration of an American institution. 

I have been very impressed with the President Obama's eloquence as he has orchestrated his departure and the transfer of the responsibilities of his office to his successor. 

This transfer of power excites me and reminds me of how great this nation is especially when compared to much of the world. Whether I agree with the policies of the outgoing or incoming President is immaterial, what is important is that the will of the people is implemented.

America first, party second. What makes us great is our ability to work together in a bipartisan manner for the good of the country. 

The Washington Post article titled, On Inauguration Day, respect for the office and hope for the nation sums it up.

We need more of that.
