Today, at noon Barack Hussein Obama will become
our President. Bring HOPE to all of us who voted for
him. And even for those who did not. He will be the

of what a great country we live in, and the possibilities.
This will be a day for everyone. Black, white and all those
in-between. This is a great day for the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
