Barack Obama


I was there when history was made.  

I was there when the voice of the people rose to change history.

I was there when this country made an amazing step forward.

I was there with 150,000 friends.

I was there with those who were beaten and battered.

I was there with those who struggled to get to this day.

I was there when a man of the the people became the leader for the people.

I was there when he called for us to sacrifice.

I was there when he promised a long road ahead.

I was there.

And now…

I Am Here.  

Yes We Can!


The insipraton for the above.  From Pres. Elect Obama’s acceptance speech.

The road ahead will be long.  Our climb will be steep.  We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America – I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.  I promise you – we as a people will get there.  

There will be setbacks and false starts.  There are many who won’t agree with every decision or policy I make as President, and we know that government can’t solve every problem.  But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face.  I will listen to you, especially when we disagree.  And above all, I will ask you join in the work of remaking this nation the only way it’s been done in America for two-hundred and twenty-one years – block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand.  


If you look near the top left of the picture you can see a crane camera–we were a bit to the left of that.
