Hope

After the business of the day and preparation for the first day of the new school year tomorrow, I've settled down to watch the inauguration of Barack Obama. What a phenominal man! His address to the nation was inspiring, and sadly I have to admit tonight I wish I was a citizen of the USA. I truly believe we are going to see this man as one of the greatest leaders of our modern age - young, humble, committed and a God-fearing man, Obama is the kind of leader people want to follow and support. His career is going to be interesting to follow - If only South Africa had a presidential candidate with a 10th of his heart!

I have to agree with you here too. He was wonderful to watch and the people just loved him. On the news, there were rave reviews about him and there is talk that he will be voted in for a second year - now that is positive!
