I’m loving that CNN and Facebook provided a way for me to watch the inauguration of President Obama. It would not have been the same just listening to NPR. I am so excited to have a president who knows how to improve the world. This is the thing that has always impressed me most about him.
President Obama’s speech was just as amazing as I expected. He was extremely clear about the most important issues that need attention right now: achieving peace, lowering insane health care costs, improving school quality, and using a lot more renewable energy. I loved how he announced that it’s time to “restore science to its rightful place.” Other fave parts:
“We have chosen hope over fear.”
“The time has come to choose our better history.”
“Imagination has joined a common purpose.”
“We cannot be broken.”
“We can shape an uncertain destiny.”
This is our time. “It’s time to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off.” This is the beginning of a better era, “a future of peace and dignity.” It’s a “new era of responsibility.”
Congratulations. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. This is our day to rejoice.
