My Commitments to Obama

1:10 PM

The long, seemingly endless election is finally over. Barack Obama is our new President. His victory was clear and decisive.

I have personally never witnessed a more bitter election.

But that was then; this is now. It is time for us to set aside our partisan hats and put on our American ones.

As a country, we still have huge problems to solve...

I want to do my part. Therefore, starting today, I am publicly making four commitments to President-Elect Barack Obama:

I will pray for him and our country.

I will assume his motives are good, giving him the benefit of the doubt.

I will not speak ill of him, even if I don’t always agree with him.

I will cast off the spirit of cynicism, and be a positive force for good.

Yesterday was a historic day. We can all be proud as Americans. Today, we begin a new future. It’s time to come together. I am ready for a united United States.
