Who remembers the 25-th of October, the day of the great red Russian revolution? In fact today, the 7-th of November is the 91-th anniversary of this event. Fortunately or not the new US president, Barack Obama, is the first black person elected on this position these days.
On this way, at the extreme of two interesting events, one from the past, and one from the present, we have in a small picture the way passed by our planet during the last one hundred of years. From trying to impose the dictatorship of the people to the election of the first representative of the US minorities mankind had passed a lot of dramatic transformations.
We as humans have understood that it’s not enough to change the political systems for doing this planet a better world, but the right thing is to choose the right person in the right position. From the discrimination based on the ethnicity from the age of 1960s to this moment when a black man is elected as president, the United States have acknowledged that it is no longer fit for a great nation to make discrimination among its citizens, and I hope that this new vision will improve the international relations.
It is no matter of culture, religion, sex or ethnicity, rather we are the sons of this lonely planet, and we have to understand to respect each other, neither raising crusades, nor destroying those having a different view from ours.
On this day of the Bolshevik revolution, the Red October, we celebrate the success of the democracy in United States, and we hope, in the whole world. The communism had very high ideals that were perverted by its followers, the capitalism is not a universal solution, rather we have to seek and find the right system for this world, by promoting the right persons in the right positions.
If we turn our attention to the Holy Scriptures, we shall see that the Lord had chosen special persons for specific tasks based on the capacity to serve His call and the others. Our burden as men is to recognize the election of God by giving trust and choosing them for the right position.
My wish for Barack Obama is to serve the nation and the planet, too, not forgetting to respect diversity and dignity of every human person.
Quoting from the encouragement God has sent to His servant Joshua, my best wish for him is this: “Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shall thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I swore unto their fathers to give them.”
God bless America, and also God bless the world!
