We welcomed in our First African American President and First Black family into the White house (in part built by slaves). A young and intelligent President Barack Obama (47) First Lady Michelle Obama (45) daughters Malia, Sasha and even Marian Robinson Michelle’s mother to help and be there for her grandchildren. All a day after celebrating the National Holiday of Martin Luther King Jr. I found it impossible to hold back my tears while watching all this take place. Later to find out that Obama was sworn into office again on Jan 21st as a precautionary reason after the mishaps of the tangled wordings while taking the Oath of office.
We gave our farewell’s to George and Laura Bush as they headed back home to Texas after Bush was relieved of his two terms as President of the U.S. On CNN Martin Luther King III spoke that his fathers dream hasn’t been filled just yet, as we still have too many people still living in poverty. Caroline Kennedy dropped out of the run for the vacant New York Senate seat previously occupied by Hillary Clinton who is serving as our current United States Secretary of State under President Obama. Ted Kennedy was released from the hospital after suffering a seizure at the inaugural luncheon for Barack Obama. There are talks of Sarah Palin looking to pick up a multi million dollar book deal and that Democratic Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibran will be chosen to replace Clinton in the Senate.
On another note I published my first written article outside of blogging so if you could so kindly give it a view I would really appreciate that. America Welcomes Obama
