It is a new day today.
Our hearts are full of hope. We want to erase the mistakes of the past and move forward.
Who knew this day would come? I always thought that America would have a woman president before an African American or someone who was considered a minority.
And how proud I am that Obama is now our president? Extremely! Oh Wow!
I have friends and family all over the world. I was of tired of defending Bush and his policies. I cringed. I was embarrassed. I was ashamed.
But no more. We finally have a true leader who we can respect and look up to.
Sure Obama has inherited quiet a mess. But I have confidence that he will do the right thing. He is intelligent and has surrounded himself with some decent politicians.
There are no Cheneys on his team. The ones who give government contracts to their own companies for a little personal profit. And are always at undisclosed locations when tough questions are asked. They simply refuse to be held accountable for any of their actions.
In my mind, there is no doubt that the Bush/Cheney regime will go down in the history as the most corrupt one ever.
Obama has morals and wants what is best for this country. Not his wallet. He wants to get along with other countries and not bully them into submission.
He wants to do the right thing. For us. The citizens of the World.
Today is a new day for all of us. Let's build good relationships.
Today my heart is filled with hope.
