A positive note on Obama......

Obama has dedicated time to neighborhood projects in poor communities.
He spoke at an event for K.I.D.S., a charity supporting disadvantaged children. He says of the charity, “It is time for a sense of empathy to infuse our politics in America… K.I.D.S. has spent over 20 years making this a reality. Now it is time for the rest of us to catch up. I look forward to making that happen.”
Obama spoke at a charity event for girls in Omaha, helping to raise $154,000 for the group.
In 2007, Obama created a “doodle” which netted nearly $7,000 in an auction for NF, Inc.

  • I think one of the reasons why people are always saying that Obama is so "inspirational" is because he calls on us to help each other. To act out in service of one another. It is so empowering to have a leader call on the people to DO something to help our country other than shop. I am so excited to be a part of a new administration that uses our greatest national resource for the greater good, the citizens of our great nation!
