we will hear, over and over for years to come.
In 2008 he made himself known. For many it
was news. Soon he became famous and well
known all over the world.
His famous words were - We need a change.
The people went crazy, eager for a change.
The people were tired. The Country was in
a bad shape. People were losing their homes
and also their jobs.
A change did happen. It was history in the
making. Only in America - people would say.
Barack Obama is his name. A new president
had been elected, by the people and for the
So fellow Americans"The White House would
have a change in 2009. People have power
and there is no doubt. It had been proven
one more time. If we stand together - we can
make a difference...
It is not about what one man alone can do.
It is about what we can all do together,
as a Nation.
