President Obama - A truly momentous day

It was a truly remarkable event seeing Barack Obama sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. After years of dismal failure and disaster under George Bush, America has finally turned over a new chapter in its history and hopefully usher in a new era in politics.

He comes to office at one of the most challenging times ever given the economic problems we face globally, and the economic recession both in the US and across the world. Likewise trying to sort out the mess that is US foreign policy is no easy task, but I believe that under Obama things will change and that we will see a real difference under his leadership.

Today was a wonderful occasion to witness, and his inaugural address was inspiring as well. The time for talking is over, now is the time for delivery. Good luck President Obama, I have faith in you!
