TAKE A STAND: President-Elect Trump

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - It was a historic night and morning, historic election, some say unexpected, a last minute surprise that is being compared to Dewey-Truman.

The national media and certainly the pollsters were caught off guard.

Whether you supported him or not, Donald Trump defeated Hilary Clinton, is now President-Elect Trump and will move into the White House in January.

There are a lot of unknowns, but one thing is very very clear. This election is over.

It's been a very long, often nasty and very divisive campaign. Our country is divided right down the middle.

Whoever you voted for, it's time for the country to begin the healing process. It will take time, but hopefully we can get there together.

In 1972, then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan made a speech at a prayer breakfast, He said, "I think our nation and the world need a spiritual revival as it has never been needed before."

A simple answer. A profound and complete solution to all the trouble we face.

Forty-four years ago, but a relevant message for us all today.
