First, I’m using the Windows Live editor to write this. I’m trying to check out and see if I like it. I have Scribefire, which is an add on for Firefox but I don’t really like to use it. So I downloaded this one to use. We’ll see how I like it.
Anyways…to the Obama love. I read in a few forums on a daily basis and in one of them they were talking about a letter that Obama wrote to his daughters.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying it…I don’t understand how anyone can hear this man speak or read his words in something like this and not just be filled with hope and possibilities for our country!! I know people are loyal to their party and beliefs, but our country is a MESS and even die hard republicans have to agree that we need a change.
From the letter:
I want all our children to go to schools worthy of their potential—schools that challenge them, inspire them, and instill in them a sense of wonder about the world around them. I want them to have the chance to go to college—even if their parents aren’t rich. And I want them to get good jobs: jobs that pay well and give them benefits like health care, jobs that let them spend time with their own kids and retire with dignity.
I want us to push the boundaries of discovery so that you’ll live to see new technologies and inventions that improve our lives and make our planet cleaner and safer. And I want us to push our own human boundaries to reach beyond the divides of race and region, gender and religion that keep us from seeing the best in each other.
Sometimes we have to send our young men and women into war and other dangerous situations to protect our country—but when we do, I want to make sure that it is only for a very good reason, that we try our best to settle our differences with others peacefully, and that we do everything possible to keep our servicemen and women safe. And I want every child to understand that the blessings these brave Americans fight for are not free—that with the great privilege of being a citizen of this nation comes great responsibility.
How can you read that and NOT be inspired??
