As we are ushered into a new age..  
"With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children' s children, that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end. That we did not turn back, nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon, and god's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."

Minus the references to "god", which is arguably unconstitutional.. it was a fitting end to a great speech. I really do have high hopes for you, Obama. And I hope that you deliver upon them in the next four (or eight) years.

Equality. I long to see more of it in America. And what shows up in America, will slowly trail around the rest of the world. For better or worse (quite often worse), America is a world leader, and where we lead, we are often followed. Let's lead it for the better, and help in some way to create a world that is better for everyone, not just for our own citizens.

I long for the days where I can choose to marry a woman, if I so choose to. I long for the day when someone from Mexico (for example) can come and live in the US in peace, if they so choose. I long for the day, one day, where we face the galaxy, the universe, and what lies beyond with a united front. Not just as America and France and England and Japan and Brazil (etc), but as Earth. When we eliminate poverty and famine and open up borders in help and not only choose, but want from our hearts to help people in need the world over. When we really, finally create the utopia that gives everyone the opportunities that they deserve, and realizes life for the wonder that it can be. I will do my best to work for that purpose ♥

Obama, I hope that you help us all make friends, the world over. That is my hope. And I will do whatever I can to help make it happen♥ ♥ ♥

A Star Trek fan too? Spiffy!

Anywho, I have an overall good feeling about Obama. Granted, he's not a god that can make all right with the world with the wave of a magic wand. Still, I like that he has the optimism, and the desire to make the world a better place. :3

And, even if he won't be able to create a utopia, here's hoping that he'll do his best, and pave the road that will lead to such.

Yep!! I'm a big Trekkie! Or well, I've watched one series or another for most of my life, so it's been an almost constant presence while growing up. ^__^

Yes, I definitely don't think that Obama will be a miracle worker who can do anything, but I have high hopes that he will help things start moving in the right direction. ^_^
