Today's subject line comes from Barack Obama's Inauguration speech today. Listening to that speech this afternoon, tears sprang to my eyes and I got goosebumps. I believe in Obama in a way that I've never believed in, well, anyone. I think that Obama may be the greatest leader I've ever known; certainly the greatest in my lifetime so far.
I watched with the rest of the world while history took place today: Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th US president and that nation's first black president. I think that Obama, his leadership style, and the change he will bring is desperately needed... but I know that there are people that disagree with me, and I fear that some of those people are violent. I was afraid that someone would take a shot at Obama during the Inauguration speech and parade and destroy my (and other people's) hopes for his presidency. At least I know that he's protected while in his car.
The world is changing, all right, and I think (hope?) Barack Obama is the one to lead that change. I'd follow him, if I lived in the US. If you haven't read or heard Obama's Inauguration speech, I'd recommend having a look at it. Not only is it inspiring for the US and the rest of the world, it manages to bash the Bush administration all at the same time. :)
