Election 2004

By Remy Benoit

As I write this, I am listening to John Kerry's concession speech to President Bush.

Iowa, Ohio, and New Mexico have yet to give us a tally and the electoral votes stand at 254 for Mr. Bush, 252 for Mr. Kerry.

As Edwards and Kerry note, yes, the nation is divided. And we will remain divided if those whose candidate did not win this time give into anger, apathy, and complacency. An election is for four years - intrinsic beliefs are ageless.
Those on both sides of all issues must continue to stand up for what they deem right. We must talk with each other; listen to each other. There is, indeed, a "field" out there where all can meet, true to themselves, and protective of the inherent rights of the country and its people.

Again, the whole world is watching, and so are future generations.

May God Bless America.
