God Bless America

Yesterday, November 6,2012, America voted with a close Presidential election. President Obama rolled to a second term over Romney for another four years as president.

The president won re-election in a race that came down to a few key states. Obama 50%, Romney 48%

Republican Mitt Romney conceded to Obama shortly after the election was called. He summoned all Americans to pray for Obama and urged the night’s political winners to put partisan bickering aside and “reach across the aisle” to tackle the nation’s problem. Adding that he prays “the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”

President Barrack Obama declaring after winning re-election that the “best is yet to come” for the United States of America.

I find it fitting today to re-read the lyrics to the song, God Bless America.

God Bless America Lyrics
by Irving Berlin

“While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. “

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.

God Bless America … Until next time, Rosie
