The Amish Experience
As we arrived into Washington D.C and walked into the Hyatt-Capitol Hill, we realized that in just a few hours, we had seen both extremes of life - The Amish vs. Capitol Hill! To top off the experience, the Hyatt was hosting the Election Watch party for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee right in the lobby! Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were in the ballroom and media was swarming around the hotel - What chaos!! We joined in for a while - acting as "silent" republicans in a hostile environment - but finally had to go upstairs to watch the final returns without the cheering and yelling!! However, we did go back downstairs, just to share in the final excitement, even though we were disappointed with the returns. As we end the evening, we offer Congratulations to President-Elect Obama!! This was not the outcome we wanted, nor the results we hoped for, but we must accept it the decision and go forward together. We will certainly be praying for wisdom as you lead our country, for clarity of decisions as you select your cabinet and strength of character to make the best decisions for the American people. We hope that God will be in midst of those decisions and may God Bess America!!
