Message to and from Obama,

Today was interesting. I actually had a great day at work. After a sorta rough day yesterday, today being my Friday (and a ten hour Friday at that).

I opened the Backlands today with my bff at work, Paula and funny guy Dave Yunker. Paula is pretty amazing. We call her the mom of the Showkeeping team. I have pretty much managed to keep my days off the same as hers for most of my time on the team to date. So, we spend most of our weeks working together, which I love.

The mood at work this morning from all of our cast was pretty amazing! Everyone was happy. You could tell even just looking at the small demographic of my 630am track talk. We told the cast that the inauguration would be broadcast live backstage for them to watch on their breaks and lunch breaks. There were random cheers and cast members talking about what a great day it would be. Not usual for a track talk at the crack of dawn. People were happy.

Of course, I was happy too. It just felt good that this was a sign of change. I know people say that one person does not make that much difference... but that really isn't true. Obama sets the tone of our government. He may not make the laws, but he will set the standard for what he expects from the law makers.

Obama has already pledged to shut down Guantanamo Bay. One of the biggest violations of what we believe in as a nation. Our justice system has always been "innocent until proven guilty," and as Americans we should be above torture. Closing Guantanamo will be a symbol that Bush bull headed style of doing things is over. We don't have to be bullies to get what we want in the world. Peace and diplomacy is the solution for a civilized society, and I am glad President Obama is making that clear.

President Obama has to be going into office with more public opinion support than any other president has started with. He can make a difference. I believe he will. Lets hope he will be as good as all the hype. I know a lot of people out there are expecting to be let down. I am not. I want him to stand up, stand for what he believes in, and show this world what a true America is about. We are a compassionate nation, and the good majority here indeed does care about everyone else, and the well being of the world.

There is soo much that he can accomplish. ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I know some people that might disagree with that, but I do believe it. It is not an easy task, but it can be done.
