President Barack Obama — All Things are Possible

Today Barack Obama is President of the United States. If ever you needed proof that all things are possible, and that vision and hope and faith can move mountains, you need look no further than the presidency of Barack Obama.

It was actually through Barack Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope, that I first learned more than Barack Obama’s name. I actually had some time to kill at the book store in early February 2008 and thought, hmm…. let’s see what all the fuss is about with this guy. I’ll sit in the cafe and read a bit and learn something without buying the book.

Five minutes later I was thinking, “Wow, this is a good book.” and “Wow, I want to learn more about this guy,” and “Geez, this guy really impresses me.” Fifteen minutes later, still waiting for my husband, I was purchasing the book. It was one of the few books that I did make time to read the paperback version (I don’t think an unabridged version of the audiobook was available at that time). And about a week later I had finished the book and made a donation. A month or two later I was one of thousands of volunteer phone canvassers.

Well-crafted words are powerful things, as is The Audacity of Hope
