Task ahead will take time

The Spokesman-Review

We now have a new president. There are people that hope he fails. There seems to be so much elaboration that he is an African-American. Why can’t it be just an American that has been elected president of our United States?

Mr. Obama is an excellent speaker and he is hopefully for all of the people and not just the rich people as it has been for the last eight years. I don’t think anyone could bring our country back to where it was until 2010 and that’s pushing it. It’s like when you put on weight; it’s easy to do and hard to get it off.

I hope by 2010 that we see a dent in restoring us back to normal. The whole world is in a mess big time and it would be nice if we all worked together. We need each other and need to really get serious. Children growing up all over the world need us to settle down and do what’s right.

I hope before I die that we get it together for our children’s sake all over the world. What kind of future is in store for our kids?
