Inauguration Day – it’s finally here!
As you all know, I’ve been a big fan and supporter of Barack Obama, and I was absolutely overjoyed at his win in November. Because I’m lucky enough to have Tuesdays off teaching, I’ll be snuggling in at home and watching the inauguration and his first presidential address.
I’ve been inspired by Obama’s message throughout his campaign and before, and I wish him all the success in the world as he gets ready to take the helm at this promblem riddled time in our country. I’m ready to see the change unfold here, both from the government and from us as citizens — I hope that all of us who feel similarly inspired will find ways we can contribute.
I’d love to be classy and not say the following, but I have to: Thank dog George W. Bush is no longer our president. THANK DOG. I have never been happier to see a man leave his office. I hope that the days of bull-headed, obnoxious, blindly stamp-footed American policy are now well behind us. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
And let’s, on this wonderful day, send out a resounding cheer and a vow to work towards a better America!
