in the midst of the dramatic facebook posts and twitter wars, it was refreshing to see some class shown by the first presidency and the quorum of the twelve apostles of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. you may have already read it but i wanted to include it here because i think it is just the perfect example of a classy response from some classy men:
We congratulate President Obama on winning a second term as President of the United States.
After a long campaign, this is now a time for Americans to come together. It is a long tradition among Latter-day Saints to pray for our national leaders in our personal prayers and in our congregations. We invite Americans everywhere, whatever their political persuasion, to pray for the President, for his administration and the new Congress as they lead us through difficult and turbulent times. May our national leaders reflect the best in wisdom and judgment as they fulfill the great trust afforded to them by the American people.
We also commend Governor Romney for engaging at the highest level of our democratic process, which, by its nature, demands so much of those who offer themselves for public service. We wish him and his family every success in their future endeavors.
i love that they urge everyone to pray for the president and the other leaders of our country as they take us through these hard times. i know i do this for our church leaders, but it is a nice reminder that our political leaders need our prayers as well.
god bless america.
