January 20, 2009

Tomorrow we install a new President - one that I hope will make some necessary changes for this weary country.

I have my reservations - because I don't think that ANYONE can bring about the dramatic change we need so quickly in such troubled times.

Because to see someone lifted up so high and placed on a pedestal only makes me wary of how hard he can fall.

Because this is a whole new ball game.

I've never experienced the energy and hope that is being exuded by the masses.

And...it makes me nervous.

Stop treating him like a God.

He's a man.

And he'll make mistakes, as did the 43 men before him.

Let's hope this love and pride and hope for him doesn't turn into hate and disrespect and despair when that happens.

Regardless of everything else, he has my respect - and my support.

And my hope for a better future.....someday.

I'm with you. I just hope he doesn't get himself killed. People are nuts. Go Obama!
