There isn't much I can say about our new President that hasn't been said elsewhere, and better, but I wanted to give a big 'THANK YOU!' to him for three words he included in his speech today: "and non-believers"
In the great speech he gave, which was moving, realistic and hopeful, he included those words in this sentence:
“For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and non-believers.”
Wow. That is just so great, to not just feel lumped in some umbrella term, but to be specifically mentioned. Quite a day for everyone in this country, indeed.
