And finally, in the stroke of noon on 20/01/2009, Barack Hussein Obama assumed office as the 44th president of The United States of America. The whole world was watching in awe as the first Afro-American president took office. And his speech was equally as good as an orator that he is.
Riding to power with a message of hope and promise of change, US President Barack Obama said that the nation is in the middle of a crisis and there are serious challenges which will be met. And he also added that terrorism will be defeated and now America is a plural nation.
On this day, Obama said: “we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.”And that the challenges that they face this time will be real,and they ill be met.
Arguing that greatness is always earned and never comes, Obama said: “Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted — for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things – some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.
YES HE CAN,for all with a HOPE FOR CHANGE he certainly CAN. That’s President Obama for you.
