Yes We Did

Keepers of our own legacy again. Yea. Thank the Lord that the long dark winter is over. Yes we can. Yes we will.

"As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our founding fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more." President Obama

I am so happy that we now have President Obama. He inherited a lot of problems, but if anyone can pull it off, he can.

President Obama...indeed.

So much to do. So little time ... before the bitter mavens of polarity roost and bellow their insipid venom. Pray they are shooed from their perch and we can do together what too few have done alone.

Be inspired. Pull together. Make it happen.

Oh Hurrah!!
And why can't everyone see all this as clearly as we can!

But we survived the Bush.

Another AMEN to your post .. and all the comments.

Here's to HOPE! We can.
