The Obama Whistle-stop Tour

January 19, 2009

USA-OBAMA/

Thanks to President Elect, Barack Hussein Obama II, for taking the time to retrace the route of Abraham Lincoln’s Historical Whistle-stop Tour, on his way to Washington DC, where he will be sworn in this Tuesday, January 20th. 2009,as the nation’s 44th.President, (and the first African American President), in this nation’s history.

 

 

From Philadelphia to Washington DC, and all stops in between, thousands of people full of love, hope, and pride lined the route to either hear President Elect Obama speak, or to just catch a glimpse of him, his family, and his Vice President and family, as they slowly rolled by.

 

Thanks to the over 1500 people who showed their love and respect for the new president in Edgewood, MD. I know that it was dangerously cold and uncomfortable, as I was standing with you on this historical occasion.

 

And I am so proud of the people of Baltimore, (my home town), who demonstrated how much this new administration means to them by filling up the War Memorial Plaza, and the Inner Harbor by the thousands to show support of the new president, and to be a living part of American History.

 

Even though there are those who are still afraid, full of fear, and in some cases hate for the new much needed changes that are currently taking place in our country, even they cannot dampen, downplay, or deny the power that is clearly in full force as the result of this movement created by the people of the United States of America, in conjunction with President Elect, Barack Obama, and Vice President Elect, Joe Biden.

 

Thanks to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and the people of the United States for standing up to the powers that be, and the status quo, in order to bring about the positive change that this nation needs in order to insure it’s survival.

 

Above all else, I thank GOD that he saw fit to let me live to see these times.
