The Day the Earth Stood Still

I am happy that Barak Obama is President of the United States.

Although I am not as politically active or interested as I probably should be, I , like most everyone in the world, was watching Wednesday morning when President Obama took his place in history and on Capitol Hill.

I am happy... not an overly emotional person when it comes to things like this.

What I didn't expect to feel was ...well...what I felt when I saw President Obama walk down the stairs and out onto the platform where he would be sworn in as President of the United States of America. A sort of thrill went thru me, a joy that was sudden and a giddy grin as I thought out loud "here HE comes!"

I am so very happy and I pray daily for President Obama and the task he has before him. I see the change already as people are actively pledging to "be the change they want to see in the world"! (I think Ghandi said that)

Yay! O-Ba-Ma!
