"Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again..." -- Barack H. Obama

An hour ago, a piece of history has just unfolded. Barack H. Obama was inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States of America. This day marks a date in history when all people around the world, not just Americans, gather and hear what a man of humble beginnings has to say as he becomes one of the most powerful leaders of this planet. His messages are so striking that it applies to all races, to all nations. Much is expected of him as there are millions believing in him. He may not satisfy fully all those expectations but his charisma may all be well enough to inspire billions around the globe. I am one of them. His words emanates to every heart of the people listening. One of my dreams is to inspire a lot of people. He did one good job doing that just now. Congratulations, Obama! May God enlighten you as you lead America, and be a good example to other nations including the Philippines.
