Did you ever hear the sentence, “Wow, the time flies by…”. Now I know why – because it does! It’s 2017, and we are all very excited to see what God will do not only in the US but in our country here in Jamaica. As I sat watching the inaugural, the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next, I found myself still in awe over the process.
It doesn’t matter who you voted for at this point. What matters is that we recognize we are a blessed nation under God and come together in unity. The whole world is watching us to see if we will pull together or be divided. I have been in Jamaica many years when elections were held. Some were better than others, but everyone knew not to go out the day of elections or that night. It wasn’t safe. We all did what we were told and things settled down.
What an example we as Americans set for the world. As we move forward into what we all agree will be change, let’s not forget that all of the world will be watching us. Strive together and serve together in 2017. It all matters.
Hope to see you on the island this year. We need you and appreciate you so much.
