Happy to be an American

For the first time in a long time I felt pride that I am an American. Watching the inauguration of President Obama brought tears of hope – something that I haven't felt during the past eight years. I know that Barack Obama is a man; a human being who can't perform miracles. I know that the American system of government is complicated and many powerful players are involved in it. I know that change takes time,effort, and cooperation, but I also know that it is possible. I hope that our new president has the time, the health, the energy, and the support necessary to bring about the changes he envisions and we all need.

I think your comments mirror the feelings of many people. I found myself asking: "What can I do?". Stay safe!

Add me to the list with realistic hope blossoming (and my biggest hope is an end to the embarassment of being an American...)!
