The day has finally arrived as President elect Donald J. Trump swears in and steps into office. While the country tries to give an image to the world that this is a flawless transition, in the background of reality those who are realist, know that it is not.
While we do not have the outright mass violence of many of a third world countries, today it is still a divided country both politically and in its people as we start a new presidency.
Never in my humble lifetime have I seen a more vicious and hateful attack on a presidential elect. it is obvious to me that many in the Democratic Party and in the main stream media outlets, are anything but happy about the new President.
What they (the Democratic Party) complained about, and told the Republican party what they should not do if Hillary Clinton became President, is the very thing they are doing and with great disdain.
It is also my humble opinion, that the violence that many far left Liberal thinkers and groups in this country have displayed, is something that conservative and even the far right groups have not done in any protest.
Let us hope that as Americans we will realize that we have two paths we can now take. Destroy America as a third world country might do, or stand as Americans as we have always done. Will we set the example for the rest of the world or not. There is no doubt in my mind at least, that even with all our imperfections, the world still looks to America for leadership and hope.
America has always stood for freedom, justice, and hope. But as the old and true phrase that have been stated through the history of nations has said: United we stand, divided we fall. Let us hope that we continue to stand.
