This may not be the kind of post you are expecting.
I am thankful that we still live in a free country. I was free to NOT watch all the inaugural hoopla. I was free to not listen as crowds booed out going President Bush. I was free to not listen to the new President's speech.
Just as folks are free to feel hopeful, I am free to feel sad and discouraged.
Just as the President was free to overturn a ban on overseas abortion funding, I am free to weep for the babies who will now lose their lives as a result.
The President is free to lift the ban on human embryonic stem cell research. I am free to grieve for the unborn babies who will never look into their parents' eyes.
I am free to feel a deepening sense of doom for our country. I am free to believe that, if God does not judge us, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
My usual Pollyanna-ish attitude is waning. I'm feeling much more like Eeyore regarding our country these days.
But it's ok to feel this way because, as of now, it's still a free country.
