A few words on yesterday...

"We're willing to extend a hand if you're willing to unclench your fist."
President Barrack Obama

Only in America could a day like yesterday have happened. Yesterday we came together from all corners of the country and every far corner of the world to see history made with the inauguration of the first African American president Barrack Hussein Obama. I watched history and by the days end I truly felt that something had changed. Last year I went through a lot, I lost friends, my full time job and I went to a bad place mentally. I learned that I suffer from social anxiety depression and possibly A.D.D. or Dyslexia. Currently I’ve gotten the help needed and I’m learning to cope with it every waking day. In November with the election of Barrack Obama (an election I wish dearly now that I had voted in) that’s where things started to change for me. I saw in this man the inspiration and hope that I believe now I had been searching for deep down inside of me. Also I found the guiding voice in making a difference in the world. I believe now in Barrack Obama and that he will lead this country to take the much needed steps in the right direction. But Barrack Obama has stated many a time that he alone can only do so much. It’s up to us as a people to come together united to do our part in the rebuilding of this country. I already have begun to do my part. I volunteered my time (just like our President) on Martin Luther King Day to help AmeriCorps in renovating a homeless shelter in my town. I plan to do more volunteer work hopefully once I’m working full time again I plan to save my money to go down to New Orleans to help in the rebuilding effort down there.

So that is what has changed in me. Once again I’m excited when it comes to politics. I am ready to finally find my way in the world. I plan to do my part for I feel that I owe it now to the President who I know now I would have voted for. Yes change certainly for me has come.
