Today, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States. Many Americans are angry. I did not vote for him. I do not like him. I wish someone else were president.
Even so, I am an American, and, yes, Donald Trump is my president. This is still my country.
I readily and happily acknowledge that in other open and free countries, the transfer of power is peaceful. However, If you will pardon a moment of national pride, I do believe that these United States do it better than most.
I wish the best for our new president, for all Americans, and for the world.
