OH YEA Barack! Unbelievable

I took these pictures of Barack Obama right after he handed me my sound recorder which a friend had dropped. When I was in the Congo a man said to me, "I just realized that Barack Obama is the president of America". I gave away my Barack Obama cap to dear Cheriff in the Congo who very much deserved it. He now has the only Barack Obama hat in the E. Congo as far as I know. Can I explain to you how proud he is of that cap. The cap came to me as a going away gift from Amy Marash.
When I met Barack that day, the day he returned my recorder to me his eyes spoke-"kindness". I was a child when President Kennedy was shot and our hope was dismissed. This is like a second chance. Today I received a quite big donation check in the mail from a precious friend urging me to do something honorable with it. I learned in Iraq to say a prayer over any money that comes into my palms. So today I held it up to God and asked a blessing and the best use for it. All good things come from above (and sometimes through the hands of amazing people).
Life is Preciously Amazing!
My favorite saying is "An enemy is only one's whose story I have not heard".

Although I dont live in American, Barack seems like the best man for the job. I was watching his journey through his political life on T.V last night and he stikes me as real and genuine. Practices what he preaches.

Thanks Sherryl for your comments. And some awesome photos you have. President Obama is a true inspiration for many of us. And I truly believe he will bring us the change we need.

Cheers..
