A New Chapter
Congratulations to our president and those who worked to reelect him. This was a hard-fought battle on both sides. I know that millions feel boastful today, but I also know that millions who fought for Mitt Romney feel broken.
A divided nation.
Mitt Romney is a remarkable man. He would have done remarkable things. Those who supported me in this effort agree that it was an honor to fight for him. He was worth it.
But it was not meant to be.
A new chapter begins. Sadly, our country remains highly divided and fractured. We all see it and we all hate it. My hope is that we will remember that we are first Americans. We can each do our part to become a more unified, tolerant and respectful people.
The gift of a democracy is that there is room for everyone.
I pray that our nation will recover financially. I pray that those who are struggling to find stable employment will find it. I pray that our leaders on both sides, will learn to find compromise and identify solutions to the problems which are crippling our nation's stability.
I pray for Mitt Romney and his family.
But I think it would be safe to say that we all need to pray for Barrack Obama.
Thank you for joining me in this cause. It was an honor to have you at my side.
