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♥ ♥ ♥

It was a really beautiful text. So wonderful see that there are people who really mind with this kind of things. ^^; It means the world really can change, I think. Because the only one who can change the world are the people!

I'm sure this will not change on Obama's presidency. Cause I think this will not change in just few years, I think it will get a lot of years to change. But I believe Obama can be the person who give an begin, right? ^^;

*nodnod* Very well said! I agree that we have to work to change the world ourselves, and I have faith that people can do it, if we work hard to inspire others. ^__^

It will take a long time to change, but I hope that Obama will start the tide that helps to change the world. ^_^ With our help!
