Obama gave a speech about the world that resonated in my ears. There were warnings and aspirations and responsibilities that I have heard all of my life. By they were given to me as an individual and the speaker was my own father.
He never told me that things would be easy and he never told me that I would not have to work for what I wanted. In fact, he taught me the value of work when I was a teenager.....I worked in the family business when it wasn't legal for others of my age to do so. But children do not need a work permit because we get an allowance not a pay check.
He told me about my ethical obligations to others.....being honest and fair and teaching by example. The only thing he forgot, was to tell my sister not to torture me. Can I report her to the Hague 50 years after the fact? I still have some of the scars.
So, I like Obama and I will give him more than a short chance. My father was right when it came to how I should live my life and if we all joined in for mutual good, this country would be that shinning star on the hill that Reagan promised us. I am ready to be called to action.....
Does this sound like a Plan to you?
