A new Era Begins

America now has a new President. President Obama brings a new vision of possibility, of responsiblity. In his inaugural speech, the new Commander in Chief made it clear that he would extend his hand to anyone / any country that would unclench theirs.

He also outlined that our nation faces tough challenges and that it would likely be a long timeframe before these will be met. But they will be met, he firmly proclaimed.

The idea of having a visionary leader willing to make the “tough decisions” is refreshing and paves the way for a new, forward-moving policy in our government. One can only hope that those inspiring words will be followed up with determined positive, continuaingly effective action.

The eyse of the world are indeed watching as the new adminsitration begins its arduous and critical path.
