Tribute #3: Obama Inauguration

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."Eleanor Roosevelt


Thoughts on the Inaguration of Barack Obama......clipping from my grandmother's journal, November 1, 1940

Something to ponder when considering the task Barack Obama has been given:
"Remember Washington's greatest trials came before he was President; so it may be said that Lincoln is the only President who carried so grave a responsibility as the man now in the White house. Please bear in mind the next time you curse him for something you feel you could do better..."

We are filled with hope and wonder that our country has chosen such an amazing man to be our next President. As we approach his Inauguration take a moment to read FDR's First Inaugural Address, March 4,1933, inspiring in its relevance to the problems we face today.

**had to post this again!.....
