this mourning at school it seemed i couldnt get away from barak obama’s inauguration. every television in the classrooms were tuned in to CNN to watch the first black president take office. when the time came around for us to fineally watch him become president everyone stopped to whatch him take the presidential oath and give his speech. no one was able to pay attention to anything else. all work stopped while he was talking, like a god had come down to earth.
i even listened to the preachers that came on before him though i dont beleive in that religion. they said a lot of great things that i honestly hope that obama’s presedency goes very well. he deserves it after comeing this far with his familu to whatch him, not to mention that his grandmother died before learning he won the general election, though im sure she knows he won where ever she went in this afterlife.
i dont know if anyone noticed but during the speech, when they switched the veiw to george walker bush for a moment he seemed a bit peeved at the speach, like he was almost a bit offended by the speech. compared to how horribly he’s made himself look during his eight years in office obama looks like a saint and doesnt deserve too much pity. most people have witnessed a major part of history today (with our first black president going into office, even if he’s black only in part) and depending on the whole iraq thing goes he may go down in history as worse than he already has.
i just hope obama has a good plan on what to do in the war in iraq. if he handles it badly it could drive the country and country relations badly. though many people want us out of the war pulling out too early can have drastic circumstances though it may save the lives of some of our troops. we’ve lost so many already i dont think adding to the death toll much would matter much though so many families have had to bury their sons, daughters, husbands, wives, and dear friends. even here in denver i see many troops passing through our city through the airport and just in general areas in the city. ive also heard of close friends of my own close friends sighning up for the army and prepareing to go out to war. though im a bit surprised to hear of eighteen year olds going to war it doesnt surprise me that they would want to go in the first place. it gives them a lot to look forward to and they have the honor to serve their country. we’ll just have to see how everything goes, both in the war and obama’s presedency.
