Well, it's official...President Barack Obama! Who'd have thunk?? For the first time in a long time I feel hopeful that we just might be able to turn things around. As I listened to his inaugural speech I was encouraged by his conviction, his eloquence and the way he included us all - We, the people! I know there are still many people that have a problem with an African American as President and it is my hope that they will keep an open mind and give him a chance. He's not going to sell us down the river. He's not going to turn our country over to Muslims. It's amazing the negativity and propaganda that circulates on the Internet - don't these people have better things to do???
I really believe he's going to do his level best to see that we ALL have a more stable economy, a sustainable peace in the world and within our own borders, and bring hope and prosperity back to this great nation of ours. Understand that it won't happen overnight, it's going to take time. He faces huge challenges and problems, but let's give him our support and ask ourselves what we can do to further the change that we so desperately need.
I know that some of you may not agree with me on this, and that's fine. We are all entitled to our own beliefs and opinions, and it is not my intent to alienate anyone but to simply express my own feelings. I am looking forward to his term in office and am proud to be witness to such a historically significant event. Onward and upward!
