Certainly today is an historic moment as Barack Obama, a black man, was sworn into office as president of the United States. Historic, of course, for many reasons, but notably for how far this country has come since the days of slavery and legalized segregation. We wish him well and pray that he will have wisdom and steadfast determination in grappling with the many serious problems that beset our nation and world. May he be a man of peace and justice, compassion and truth.
