Obama, The New President

Now the work begins, undoing all the damage that the Bush presidency has done. Hopefully, all the soldiers will be brought home from Iraq.

The fact is, this is more than Barack Obamas job to remake the vision of our country. It is our job too.

Under the regime of Bush & Cheney, we have again become The Ugly American. Barack Obama inspires hope in me and I know that I have to do my part.

Use less fuel. I bicycle, I have a small motorcycle that gets 60 mpg, a Honda Rebel 250cc, and a nine year old Honda Civic that gets close to 30 mpg. My wife has a newer Honda Civic which gets 35 mpg.

And that’s just the beginning. A new beginning for all of us.

Do I pray? Yes, I do. But it takes more than that. My actions speak louder than my words. I can say anything I want here but if I don’t live it, it becomes meaningless blather.

May the world, and the United States, heal, heal, heal.

Our species stands poised on the edge. We face challenges never faced before. The choice is ours — the collapse of civilization as we know it — or a world where life is held sacred and promises kept.

May whatever God you believe in calm your spirit and enrich your soul.
