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.

May we continue to pray for all our leaders.
