There are five days to go before we embark on a promising new course for our country and the entire world. Tuesday, January 20, 2009 will begin a transformational change in outlook for all of us when Barack Obama officially becomes our President. Worries over the economic downturn, the loss of jobs and a continually worsening housing market have dominated the recent months. We have a long way to go, and President Obama warns us it is likely to get worse, but we have hope for the future and we all want him to succeed.
I have always believed that the psyche of the country, and the world, has more to do with the economy than any other factor. Next week our mood will lift, and our new leader will take us to a better, more positive place. Congratulations to all of us!
