…from the folks in the Sudan voting to create their own nation, to a leader not wanting to relinquish power in spite of having lost an election to the horrendous shootings in Arizona. I am generally proud of our country and how we can transition from one administration to another peacefully. I mean, how easy would it have been for any President or any Congressional house to just simply not leave and to hold onto power at all costs, even violence? It would be so easy…and yet, we honor the elections (generally speaking, with maybe one notable exception and even then – the courts were used, not violence) and move from one administration to another peacefully. Yes, our government is not perfect but it’s pretty amazing that it’s done peacefully.
