Peaceful elections rare in the world

I am an American Muslim, and I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. I congratulate President Obama and pray for the success of our nation. It is uplifting to witness another peaceful election, something many other nations struggle to achieve.
Deadly coup détats and riots. Violent uprisings and revolts. For much of the world, peace is a foreign concept.
I hope the president continues to promote human rights and human welfare. Not just at home, but around the world. With liberty and justice for All.
