Enter Obama


America inaugurated a new president this week—you may have heard something about it.

Actually, you’ve probably heard a lot more about it than I have—without television or internet in my new house, I didn’t see or hear any of the inauguration, which is a little disappointing.

Not disappointing because I’m a big Barack Obama fan; I’m certainly not, as I’ve written before.

Disappointing because Obama makes a good speech. Even when I disagree with him, he’s easier to listen to than a lot of people.

Disappointing because the inauguration of a black president is an historic event in the history of our nation. An event we should be proud of, and which shows how far we’ve come in the last 40 years.

Disappointing because as the new president of our country, Obama faces a lot of serious problems, and he’ll need the support of Americans, even ones like myself who disagree with him (a support that Bush never really got).

Barack Obama wasn’t my choice, but he is my president.

I didn’t elect him, but I will respect him.

We have chosen hope over fear, Luke.

I'm not very hopeful about some of the people that he has appointed though.

Derek,

LOL.

I don’t actually remember choosing fear, myself.

Mrs. D,

If you look at my comments on the last post, you’ll see that I’m not so much either.

Haha I know, it was just like the main headline for Wednesday's edition of the Traveler on campus lol, and it's what he said.

Derek,

Ya, I knew it was from his inauguration. Hopefully, that nation’s “choice of hope” will pay off.
