My dad did not grow up in this country. My dad wrote this on his blog today…
On November 4th, 2008 we will vote for a new president. Watching the news, reading the papers, and listening to the voices around me, I began to reflect on some important facts:
1.-We have the freedom to vote.
2.-There will be no military presence at the polling places.
3.-We will not be afraid to vote our conscience.
4.-We will have a new president.
5.-We will not have a coup.
6.-We will pray for and support the new president.
In many countries of the world, the loosing party would seek to assassinate the new president. I pray for God’s protection of our new president. I thank God for the privilege of living in a country where bullets do not fly at night after an election.
