A New Start

I am currently sitting in bed, watching the Barack Obama Inaugural Celebration. I am a bit nostalgic because I walked those same steps at the Lincoln Memorial just over a year ago. Washington DC is one of my favourite places on earth.

Now I don`t care if you vote for the Democrats, Republicans, ANC, DP, COPE, Tories or Conservatives but tonight / today and the next few days are memorable days for all of us.

The last year has been one of the worst we have known. Companies that have been succesful for more than a century have folded. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their jobs. The world as we know it has changed forever.

But tonight, sitting here in my bed, I feel really positive about the future. I really believe that a new day is about to dawn. The start of a new, bright future is here. We must just be open to the posibilities.
We have to get behind President Elect, Barack Obama and plot a new course. It`s in us to make a difference.
America, we are right next to you, let`s get out of this together...

Heather, thank you!!!! You saved this post from dying a terribly lonely death, no comment in sight... :)

I have been glued to the tv the whole afternoon! I had goosebumps most of the time. It`s gonna be tough but I reckon you guys picked the right guy for the job.

Hayley and I now really want to go to the States!
