Hope instead of Fear...

Categories: Other
America has such a global influence that most peope sit up and take notice when they elect a new President. I was on my way home from work tonight and listened to Barack Obama deliver his inaugural speech on the radio. I thought it was enthralling (although not a patch on his victory speech after the November election). I've since read quite a lot of reaction, not all positive, but I don't know many people who can have an audience hanging on their words in the way Obama does. To paraphrase the man himself, I'm left to hope that this is someone who follows a promise rather than fears the big decision :-) Here's the speech as a wordle
