I want to be one of the many out there to offer my congradulations to President Obama. I wrote about this more in detail after the election but as I sat here in the middle of China some 8,000 miles from the action I watched as the new President gave a call to sacrifice.
I relish that!
One of the things that disappointed me during the last 8 years was the lack of message on sacrifice given by President Bush. After 9 / 11 we were not told as Americans how we could participate in a concetrated effort to keep America safe and later how we could support the battles being raged in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Instead we were told to spend! “If we stop spending, the terrorists win.”
President Obama’s speech will not rank in the annuls of Great Speeches. But it was a good speech that called on Americans to give of themselves.
And thats a pretty good start!
