I must say, I hate politics. I am so glad that it is over. I didn’t like either canidate. I would have gladly voted for Obama if he showed any patriotism. I am a military brat and my father served in Vietnam, my grandfather served in WWII. I have friends who have served in the current war in Irac. Paritotism means a lot to me. I have no respect for him as a person. I gladly place my hand over my heart when our nations flag is presented. To me and many other americans, it represents those currently and in our history that have sacraficed it all for our freedom. I am not comfortable about Obama’s comment about changing our national anthem. “Bomb’s bursting in air” does not promote violence. He need to take into comsideration the next line. “Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” Amid the battle for our freedom, with all the fighting, our flag still stood as a monument of our faith, our determination and our freedom. God has blessed this country. I pray that Obama will keep his campaign promises and that God will not allow him to change things that are sacred to me and to this country.
Sorry I don’t usually go into such detail, but I feel strongly about this. I am however greatful that my cousin Brandon will finally cut his hair. He has been growing it out in protest of Bush and any republican in congress.
