My Inaugural Invitation
I have been patiently waiting for my invitation to the inauguration this coming Friday, January 20, 2017. I was fairly shocked to find out the invitation did not come in my mailbox. I found it on the Internet, I will share the site with everyone, we may have to hurry and send in our requests for individual tickets.
One great thing about living in this day and age of computers and electronic wizardry, we can tweak each other, send messages around the world in micro-seconds and receive invitations to the presidential inauguration right over the Internet.
I recall when Richard Nixon was sworn in. I tried hard for weeks to find a ticket, there were none to be had. I’m sure if it would have been George McGovern’s inauguration there would’ve been mail bags loaded with tickets sitting around at the train stations and bus depots, because the opposition hung a LIBERAL label on him.
I remember calling George McGovern and thanking him for being such a gracious loser to the then popular Richard M Nixon. Our Democracy has a system of checks and balances for everyone. George was labeled a Liberal, he was actually a very proud bi-partisan political servant of the people and country. He volunteered for the Army Air Corp during World War Two and was a pilot on the B-24 Liberator, flying 35 missions over German occupied Europe.
History continues to be made, our incoming president would like the prayers this coming Friday of those who opposed him. I hope his supporters also pray for him. I don’t think a better request could have been made by any incoming president.
The power of prayer is very capable of turning all events into positive, productive, outcomes. I have enclosed the website for everyone else who wants to hurry and send for their tickets. You will receive a limited edition, commemorative ticket as a keepsake to frame and remember this historic event.
“On Friday, January 20, we celebrate a new day for America as Donald J. Trump and Michael R. Pence are sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States. Because you played such an important role in our movement to Make America Great Again, President-elect Trump wants to personally invite you to the Inaugural Welcome Concert and Inaugural Swearing-In Ceremony.”
