On April 1, I had the distinct privilege and honor to shake the hand of our great president, Barack Obama. As I listened to his speech and looked around at all the people, I couldn't have been more proud to be an American.
Outside the Portland Expo were a group of protesters. They also need to be commended on their conduct and orderliness.
Although everyone has the right to believe as they wish, it is a shame that in these very difficult times, people can't find a way to pull together and try to find common ground for the good of this nation.
I will continue to believe in our president and his vision.
I also pray that others will eventually see the light, regardless of what party they belong to.
