THE GREATER GOOD IS THE ELECTION WINNER

The presidential election has finally been decided. Republican George Bush will be the next president of the United States of America. Both Bush and Vice President Al Gore are to be commended on the debates that focused on the various issues that face Americans.
Both men in my books go down as winners. It is no easy task to run for public office. As close as this presidential election race was, this is by no means, in my opinion, the end of Al Gore. Will Americans see a Bush vs. Gore rematch in 2004? Bet on it.
Vice President Gore's concession speech showed why the United States is a great country. Considering its size and the diversity of its races, cultures and opinions, it is yet a country where we, its citizens, live in peace among our fellow Americans. When one looks at all the conflicts waging around the world and all the senseless violence, we should not take for granted how or why we are able to live in such peaceful coexistence.
Gore recognized what was happening to the country and made a decision to start the healing. This unprecedented move began the process for our leaders of building bridges for this country, the U.S. Virgin Islands included, of working for the greater good for all the people. It is time for Republicans and Democrats to work together and pursue the healing process.
As a registered Republican, I want to welcome the vice president and his family to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Enjoy the down time! It's well deserved!
