Tonight as we were eating dinner, some of the people who had iPhones were checking the election updates. By the time we were having dessert it was pretty clear that Obama won the election.
When I got back to the hotel room, I was watching the concession speech by John McCain. As I was listening to him, I gained a whole new level of respect for him. Not only was he gracious in his speech, but he was able to calm some of the crowd’s boos and jeers when Obama was mentioned.
As the camera panned out, it was hard not to notice that the crowd was almost 100% white. What a completely different picture when I saw the celebration held in Chicago on the Obama camp.
Regardless of how people voted, the key thing is to remember to pray for the President-elect Obama.
