"Once you choose hope, anything's possible"

Today is the beginning of a new era, new hope, and new expectations and over all a lot of speculations. I am sure the World witnessed it and everyone is hopeful.

“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
When I look at it, I feel the emotions of the people who remembered their forefathers who suffered in many ways. Imagine, where one’s hand is not even shaken, one cannot even go and study in the same school where a white man studies and so many such stories – there today, a colored person is taking oath as a President of that Country – words are few to express the moments but those who have lived the past moments of differences and have grown old to see today can only express through their emotions!

“The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.” ~ Allan K Chalmers

I remember as a kid when I was taught how our great grand parents and leaders of those times who fought to bring independence to the country – they gave their life so that we can live a better life – that’s the exact words I heard from the President Barack Hussein Obama and I didn’t feel anything different but the feeling is same and respect is same towards those who sacrificed their lives.

I congratulate America, President Barack H Obama and Vice President Joe Biden for today January 20th

“We have a problem. 'Congratulations.' But it's a tough problem. 'Then double congratulations'” ~ W Clement Stone

A very Che Guevaraesque interpretation of Obama in the 'Hope' photograph, na?

Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give...!

These days we see so many incidents, messages, tweets, videos in social media talking about 'stand up'! Yes, I don't want ...
