"America, we cannot turn back. Not with so much work to be done. Not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for. Not with an economy to fix and cities to rebuild and farms to save. Not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend. America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone." (Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, August 28, 2008)
Wow. What a speech. What an inspiration. I can't wait until this man is the leader of our country. I know I'm going to work to make that happen.
Speaking of politics, my politically named godson, Lincoln, was among those in Springfield for the rally where Obama announced Joe Biden as his running mate. There he is meeting Biden!
And there he is getting kissed by Michelle Obama!
If that wasn't exciting enough, we got some even more exciting news the next morning. Vietnam, here we come!!!!! Believe it or not, we leave in seven days. Sam, we're bringing you home so you can live the American promise Barack talked about. Finally.
