Congratulations America

Congratulations America!
Congratulations Obama!

Good luck Mr president

I am very touched and inspired by the happenings in America and followed it with excitement. For some to say that Obama is young and inexperienced. He is 20 days older than me. A good foundation I think. This aside I think he is a great spirit. This a a wonderful start for the future.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Obama


  1. Marja, I have missed you and I think of you at times, wondering if you are OK. Yes, congrats and good luck to Obama, I believe America has chosen wisely and correctly this time. We all needed that :D

  2. Missed you too Mary Kate. Just catching up with a lot of things I still had to do and also making some changes. I do miss blogging though
    The new president is very inspirational and I was very touched by the happenings in America. There is hope for the world.

  3. Dag,Marja!
    Great post and I hope his dream "Yes we can" will be true in the USA!
    I am happy that you received my postcard!It was wonderful in your home country.I love it!
    Hope to hear from you again...Miss you!


  4. I always wonder about the experience question. What first time president/prime minister/leader is ever experienced anyway? Maybe it's for the better and some refreshing new thinking will come along! He's been a senator, so he's not that inexperienced.

  5. Trouble is can he convience the congress that his ideals are right?

    The old school seems ta rule and that is a bad thing!

    Miss ya...........xx

    The future will tell us Steve. Lets hope so

  7. Great comments Marja. I am excited too but alas, I am more than 20 days older than Obama.

    Let's pray for this leader to deliver us.
