A time to look ahead

Tomorrow a new U.S. President— Barack Obama — will take the oath of office in Washington, D.C.

People from throughout the world will watch, along with Americans, as our new leader begins his four-year journey.

Obama takes over from George Bush and will inherit the long litany of problems including war, economy, foreclosures, health care and the stock market — just to name a few.
The task ahead is massive as we have heard through television, radio, computer and newspapers.
As president-elect, Obama began work a few months ago and is ready to hit the ground running this week. Along with Joe Biden, his new vice-president, and with a new team of leaders, Obama will takle all the issues — all enormous.

One bright note is the White House will have a young family — Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama and Michelle's mother. Their news will focus on the every day — from what singers and entertainers they like to what puppy will live in the family home.

Every day distractions are welcome ones at that help balance the messages of doom and gloom we are bombarded with every day.
