Welcome to the 21st Century

What a day in America today has been. The fact that we can have a change of power every 4 or 8 years without violence, without a military coup. This one was especially amazing to watch. The past 8 years have been so hard. I watched until Bush’s helicopter finally disappeared from view and then I exhaled. I held my breath again when the new first couple got out of the limo on the parade route. I felt afraid for them. I know both good and bad exist in this world. I want him to just be in a big protective bubble and help turn things around from there. Really?…I just want him to get to work.

I wanted to remind you to check out the updated http://www.whitehouse.gov

I went there tonight and it’s brand new. Here’s a link to the before and after website:

It took 9 years to really get us into the 21st century… for us to actually BE in the 21st century but “AT LAST” we are here. (That one’s for you Etta) So…Dance the night away and then get ready because whatever ride we are on? It has begun.
Peace & Love,
Val

    Congratulations to President Obama and to all Americans.The peaceful and orderly transition of power is something you can rightly be proud of. Your ability to self-correct through the various stages of your nation’s history augur well for your future.

    As a foreigner who wants good things to happen in any and all parts of the world, I wish Americans will work more in harmony with their president. How successful Obama can be as American president will depend on how well his fellow-Americans can rein in their demands for their expectations to be satisfied.

    Keep the hopes alive.
