We need to thank the Lord that we live in a country where we can express our views and that we have the privilege to vote for the candidates of our choice.
The election is over, and God is in control and we need to allow Him to be in charge. Now we need to pray for our political leaders, both Democrats and Republicans to be able to work together for the betterment of our great nation.

Larry Westmorland,
