Obama's speech in Cairo, Egypt
I always believe that violence is never a solution when there're conflicts among people, races, religions or countries. Yet, quite a lot of people in this world resort to violence and it only fosters hatred among people generation after generation (I've been hearing about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since I was a kid).
Although I believe that many people share my view on this issue, I was moved when I heard that Obama expressed the same opinion.
It's one thing to believe in something. It's another thing when the commander-in-chief also shares the same belief.
As capable as the citizens of a country are, people need a leader to lead the country in the right direction; Obama is doing that now.
In an old post I conservatively claimed that Obama is the right choice because he has a smaller chance of screwing up compared to McCain/Palin. Now, I start to believe that he really is the right choice as the President of the United States, which is a role that has tremendous impact not only in America but the entire world.
President Obama, thank you for being very hard-working. Thank you for making the government a lot more transparent. Thank you for including capable people in your administration regardless of their races, backgrounds and political parties. And, last but not least, thank you for making an effort to lead us to a more peaceful world.
Please stay healthy and don't tire yourself out (play some basketball regularly!) . May God bless you :)
