Election - History in the Making!

History in the making!

Last night was a truly historical moment for the United States. The first African Americam was elected President of the United States. I did not have the chance to watch his speech, but read the entire transcript. I am very impressed and moved by his words. He is a very eloquent speaker. He is not quite the youngest president ever. Theodore Roosevelt was 42 when he was elected and John F. Kennedy was 43.

Personally I am glad the whole thing is over and we don't have to listen to anymore campaign speeches, political rhetoric or multiple commercials endorsing this, that and the other. After two years, it had gotten quite old. Life can return to normal as we know it, until the next time.

It will be interesting see how Barack Obama will operate as the President and what direction he will lead us in. Only time and experience will tell. He has taken on one of the toughest jobs in the nation. Its always amazing what the candidates promise during their campaigns. But when they finally get to the white house and take on the role of Commander in Chief, they soon discover what they can or can not do.

We wish him all the luck in the world and will keep him in our prayers.

For those of us who homeschool, this has been a truly educational moment.
