Incredible - inspiring. And I believe him, and in him. Not many people, let alone politicians I feel that way about.

Yes us too! I am not a great TV watcher, but my husband, myself and my crochet hook watched and enjoyed!

esti, kendalee, freshly found - Yes, it was inspiring, wasn't it? He seems to have such Presence, which is something one finds so seldom.

Khaled - Thnaks for visiting! I like your interesting poetry, oh, and that beautiful moon landscape photo - so clever! I wanted to call it: The Moon Manufacturer.

Thank you so much for your kind words. There were a birthday gift.

I do not think that you have to be the biological parents to raise kids. Sometimes some people (biological parents) care less.

You must have it on your heart to be good parents and my feelings that you are a very good one to be able to raise three.

i am really glad to cross you and read your blog.

All the best

Yes, we are all hoping, BUT: how disappointing that he did not write his own speech. In fact, has he written any of his speeches?

Anairam said...

Sarah - Yes, it felt a bit silly to be snapping away at the TV, but there it is!

Linda Sue - Another golden couple! But I am hoping that people will not have unreasonably high expectations of them ... he has a LOT to deal with.

anonymous - Do presidents EVER write their own speeches? It did not bother me much - his delivery was beautiful - with gravitas (is that the word?). But yes, we are all hoping that he will be the one to start turning things around, but I do not think one should have unreasonable expectations. He is human after all.
