On the brink of the inauguration of our 45th president of the United States, we seem to be anything but united.

Before the election, when the Democratic nominee was expected to win, our current president reminded us that we must have a peaceful transition of power from himself to our next leader.

He made it clear that he would not support challenges to the election results.  Now that a great political upset has taken place, the Washington elites are playing a different tune.

Against all odds, the Washington outsider took a sweep of the nation’s electoral votes.

Donald Trump is the people’s pick and won the election, although his political foes were extremely well funded, well organized and included Democrats, Republicans and a majority of major news media.

Mr. Trump may not have been your personal first pick for the presidency, he wasn’t mine. However, the day after the election my friend was still my friend, my neighbor my neighbor, no matter which candidate they voted for.  

The majority of Americans are sick and tired of the continued political attack on our future president.  

No, he does not fit the politically correct model of a politician, but that is exactly why he won.

Americans are fed up with “business as usual” in Washington, D.C.

To the political elite, news media, entertainment industry, to our neighbors and fellow Americans of every color and political persuasion let me say this: let us lay down our weapons of division, stop the attacks, and unite behind our new president.

Blessings will come as we discuss our differences with civility.  Who knows, we may once again become the United States of America.
