Goosebumps and 'Hope'

"America is a friend to each nation and every man, woman and child... and we are ready to lead once more" 44th President of the United States Barack Obama

It has been some time since I've seen a leader or public speaker who has the ability to captivate an audience and transcend goosebumps at the end of each powerful statement. Barack Obama has that power! Since my roommate Josh and I are abstaining from having a television, youtube has been my one-stop Obama shop for the regular dose of powerful speech and goosebumps.

I really feel like we once again have a great leader steering the fate of this country. Being fully aware that change for the better will not come overnight but with many days of 'cutting the fat' of unethical government and commercial practices. It is truly time to become responsible in all manners of our lives and I know it begins with myself personally. The United States of America has had a 20-year period of excessive consumption on luxuries that we cannot afford, once again, it begins with me. It's a great feeling to actually listen mindfully to our nation's leader, I can't recall the last time I've had this sentiment of trust and faith in the captain of the ship. A fresh start for us all, the key is simplicity. One of the greatest things I learned in 2008 in Argentina, happiness can be revealed through simplicity. Hold me too it por favor!

Great! I hope we will all start raising our "frequency" and grow towards purity and simplicity, we have to, otherwise we would destroy ourselves and our pretty planet... I'm really glad that a 24 yrs old American thinks the way you do and there's probably many others like you, and I really really hope there are lots of young people like you everywhere on Earth. I'm just sad sometimes that I'm so old already ;)) ;)) - there's some real exciting times coming real sooooooooooooon!!!!!!!!
(oh boy, am I optimistic today or what! LOL)
