It’s your show now

Barack Obama has been sworn in as the new President of the United States of America.  It’s time for the high expectations placed on him to begin turning into reality.

To me, he’s an icon of hope, inspiration, and unity.  I find it odd I feel so strongly towards him – he hasn’t been “proven”… sure, he battled his way through a bitter campaign, but that could be a sign of personal ambition more than anything else.

And yet, I tune in to his inauguration late at night here in Singapore to see if I can experience any of the atmosphere surrounding Washington DC, to watch the joy of folks across America that have gathered together, and listen to his words once again.

“Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.” – Barack Obama

The American dream is still alive.
