God will al­ways lead us

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor: The elec­tion now is over. To the sur­prise of many, Don­ald Trump won and will now be­come our 45th pres­i­dent. Let us be re­as­sured that no mat­ter how con­tentious this elec­tion was, God was there all along and led us through it. What is im­por­tant now is that we do not for­get where our real help comes from, es­pe­cially if there is now a time of po­lit­i­cal up­heaval and eco­nomic un­cer­tainty.

The only an­swer is that we re­turn to a liv­ing faith in God, and to the com­mand­ments to love Him with all our heart and mind and soul, and to love our neigh­bors as our­selves. If we truly do this, we will have a chance to re­cover the firm foot­ing on which our na­tion was founded, and once again be­come a sym­bol of sta­bil­ity and hope for the rest of the world.

It is up to each one of us to work for re­spect, friend­ship and unity in our homes, churches, schools and places of work.

Years ago, Ge­orge H.W. Bush spoke of a thou­sand points of light. As peo­ple of faith, we know what this light is, and where it comes from, and we need to ask and pray that each one of us car­ries it as we now go for­ward. Jo­hann Christoph Arnold,
