I’d like to sincerely wish President Obama (who will, in all likelyhood, never see this post) a safe, strong, and successful term as President of the United States.
I hope he remains to be the elloquent leader he has proven himself to be thus far, and that he helps to pull this country back out of the economic pit it has fallen into.
I hope he brings everyone home safely, and keeps them home.
I hope that people who pointed at the TV screens today at 12:00 PM and said, “Hey look, history,” were right.
President Obama, I hope you enjoy the next 4 years.
(P.S. On an off-topic note, it was awesome to see Yo-Yo Ma, my personal hero, playing John Williams music with Itzhak Perlman, Gabriela Montero, and Anthony McGill)
Happy New Year Everyone! May you all have a magnificent 2009!
