  • I wanted to write into the blog as I want everyone around the world
    to know that many many people in the USA are truly committed
    to working in the world, not causing war after war…..
    Many,many of us truly care how you look and feel about us. We (that have worked
    so hard for Obama) have heard”puppet figure” and the same old stuff
    and SO NOT TRUE. We were sickened of the tactics and politics of the last 20 years(both parties) and many of us feel that Barack Obama
    is finally the person who thinks globally. NOT dominating the world,
    but a part of it. We hope that all of you out there know that this is
    going to take some time. That the USA has huge problems. That we face and created huge problems. I hope that you can give us all
    time . Not everyone wants more war here, far from it . So have a
    little faith. No one could quite believe that an African American
    would be voted into office. This is deeper, more serious than the
    world realizes. America demanded change. Just give us a little faith! Peace!
