Obama via Wordle


Via the great tool Wordle, here is the inaugural speech of the 44th president of the United States: Barack Hussein Obama. The entire text here, via CNN.

Obama's Inaugural Speech

Mark your calendars: January 20th, 2009. Let’s see what lays ahead.

Interesting and exciting times, indeed.


Some not profound things… Except one.

First, football.

At the moment I’m writing this post, the Cardinals already are the NFC champions and are waiting for the Steelers or the Ravens to join them on February 1st in Tampa Bay for the Superbowl XLIII. Since I have a thing against the Steelers I’m cheering for the Ravens…

Next, I went to watch a plethora of movies, including Penelope, Seven Pounds, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Marley & me. All worth your time and money.

Next week is going to be an interesting one: on Monday, in the U.S. is celebrated the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. and it’s Obama’s presidency start.

The first event will give me and other people in the U.S. a day off (pretty vain thing , if I may add), but his existence brought U.S. civil rights  to a different path. Which, gave the U.S. (via a long election campaign process), Obama as their new president.

This event bring the obvious issues to the table but people in the U.S. is routing for two: change and hope.

May Obama be all that he can be.

P.S. It’s always thrilling to witness history! 🙂
