President Barack Obama


What an amazing morning. I am so happy that some of Martin Luther King's contemporaries were able to witness this event, that they paid so dearly for, and I hope they feel our gratitude.

I spent the morning with my neighbors laughing and crying, we are all so hopeful that this President will not only revitalize our country but also our patriotism, which has suffered fatally these last eight years. It is an incredible responsibility to lay at his feet, but I really think he is capable of it.

Today is the beginning of a new age in American politics, and fortunately, or unfortunately, there is nowhere to go but up.

Finally proud to call myself an American again,

Elise

I couldn't have said it better myself. I have high hopes that this move will restore the worlds trust in the US (and our faith in ourselves)... at least I won't feel like hiding my identity when I travel. And hopefully we'll all start living responsibly, both economically and environmentally.

Yes! From your lips to everyones ears. We can all look forward to traveling and not pretending to be Canadian.
Thanks for the comment.
