What will you do?

Well, this is it. I have remained silent about this whole process, but today is the day I speak! I am very proud and very hopeful of a bright, new phase to this wonderful life I am living in the United States. I am very open to new ideas and can't wait to see where this journey takes us. So, what will you do to bring hope and welcome this new opportunity to our country? What will you do to open the eyes of the next generation to change? I am so very happy!!!

  • I already opened the eyes of two people in the next generation. My Kids. They were very interested in the whole election process and are exceptionally happy today that Obama is now our president.

  • Both of my kids are scared. I am trying to keep with the "wait and see " attitude.

  • I think we need to instill some work ethic into the next generation and financial responsibility. You have what you work for-nothing more.

  • Only time will tell if the country will be happy and better off. As for me, I am already happy with life.

  • We are not changing anything we teach our son or our nieces and nephews. We already are teaching our son he is responsible for himself in this life and cannot expect others to pick up the slack. We are teaching talk is cheap and actions speak louder. So he goes to the homeless shelter and helps alongside us. He watches us write out our charitable donations and we explain how we help women who have been abused and left behind. We are good parents and always have been and did not need someone who does not help other unless he is running for office inspire us to be better. 

    Obama is the President but is not the Great Hope so many are looking for.  They only will get out of the mess they are in when they do it for themselves.

  • OP: Why did you "stay silent" about the whole process?? So far, you haven't said anything provocative.... So what were you expecting backlash from?
