Tomorrow is the big day, FINALLY we will have a new President elect. On the eve of his inauguration, President-elect Barack Obama talked with wounded troops at a military hospital and then visited an emergency shelter for homeless teens. Grabbing a paint roller to help give the walls a fresh coat of blue, Obama said there can’t be any “idle hands” at a time of national hardship.
Obama appealed to the nation he will soon lead to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. through service to others. “It’s not a day just to pause and reflect — it’s a day to act,” Obama said on King’s national holiday. “I ask the American people to turn today’s efforts into an ongoing commitment to enriching the lives of others in their communities, their cities, and their country.”
Obama issued a statement declaring, “King’s was a life lived in loving service to others. As we honor that legacy, it’s not a day just to pause and reflect — it’s a day to act.”
This year as Americans, we have a new opportunity to rebuild our future. Astrologically, I see a future of hope and new inspiration. The ride will be bumpy, but we have a new man at the wheel that will steer us to gentler waters. What an exciting day!
