A few words struck me from President Obama's inaugural speech:
Unity of Purpose
Action, Bold, Swift
Change, change, change
Hope and virtue
Our inner conversations create a picture of who we are. The words we use to talk about ourselves, our past, our future, are important defining factors as we create our reality.
I like these words above. They are words that inspire and create a vision of something I would like to be as an American.
Actually they brought tears to my eyes as I listened the other evening, along with another 500 people at a gathering organized by the Democtrats Abroad. Some of us were a bit embarassed at how emotional we had become, but it has been a long hard eight years to be an American abroad.
a domani and a new beginning,
