Obama Party

I am using my laptop tonight as I started to install my new printer/scanner/fax machine this afternoon and my computer is pulled apart. I knew that I was in for a bit of an investment of time, but I needed to have a printer working again, so I bit the bullet and opened the box. It probably took me a half an hour to photograph the box set up (in case I have to repack it), carefully undo all the packing material, and carry a very heavy piece of machinery into the office.

Unfortunately for that project, I had to leave it incomplete as I had a date to go to the local brewery for a party to watch Obama’s Acceptance Speech.

I am still not sure what organization put on the party at Keegan Ale, but rumors of it being supported by Bard and Vassar College were floating around. I Googled it and found several links to the Obama/Biden website.

I joined up with a great group of like minded friends and headed to the brewery. It felt odd to be doing this, as this is the first time in my life I have actually become involved in something like this, and like the crowd, was swept of with a wave of hope and Patriotism while watching the speech. After such a painful 8 years under Bush, he represents a balm for the wounds of this country.

This past year I have realized the importance of being part of the solution, and I cheered as he called Americans into action to do their part to make the changes that are needed. AMEN. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IN SOMETHING, no matter how small!

Obama has a lot of work to do, correction- WE ALL have a lot of work to do, and I know that it will take a long time to repair the damage - it may reach well beyond his terms. I just hope the people of America give him a chance.

To change,

Patti O Rebel

I also feel stirred to action and can't help but think this is a good thing for us all. I've also done research.....for an excellent article (and explanation of what's gone wrong with our economy) see the following NY Times article. (I hope this link comes thru).
