One year ago today America changed.
We experienced what may well be the most polarizing presidential election of our lifetime.
I don’t think any of us will forget where we were or how we were feeling when we realized that Donald Trump would become our next President.
Whether you supported him or were devastated, there was a feeling of uncertainty and anticipation for what was to come. Nobody knew what to expect.
Regardless of your affiliation or views, the past year has challenged us to think hard about what it means to be American.
The whole world has been watching and it’s required us to stand up more than ever for what we believe.
We’ve seen marches, protests, violence, controversies, new policies, and an endless amount of debate and analysis from all sides of the political spectrum.
People are defending what they feel is best for our nation socially, economically, and what it means to be a leader.
I believe it’s these times of hardship that make us stronger and I have faith that we’ll be better for it.
I pray everyday for the health of our nation and its people.
It’s my hope that we will be able to look past our differences, be accepting and respectful of one another, and be united as one.
