I’ve been in the US for almost 10 years. The first year doesn’t really count since I didn’t know any English let alone politics. Then 4 years of high school and 4 years of university, all under Bush’s administration. It’s going to be very interesting to experience something else, something new.
Many students that I’ve taught asked me about Obama. Every one of them loved Obama. There are many expectations of Obama and his administration to bring “change”. Most people think that after Obama, well now President Obama (so weird to say that) takes over, things will starting changing with a snap of a finger. This ditch that we’re in is going to take time for us to climb out. One person can’t change everything. Obama represents change, and that in itself brings hope to the people. Obama is not going to meet all these expectations in his first administration. It takes TIME.
Anyway, this is history right here. I’m glad I have the chance to witness something like this.
God Bless America!
