I was given this T Shirt a few years ago and have worn it many times to show my disdain of the Bush administration. I wish him a happy retirement from politics, something he should never have been involved with in the first place. Whilst I always looked forward to the particular moment inscribed on the shirt, I don’t think I could have imagined the way it would galvanise and unite people across the world.
It really was quite an extraordinary day though of course the expectation is now huge. I don’t know how much can be done or achieved in a short time but I do believe that we have a man in the White House who has huge integrity, humility, inteligence and a heart of compassion and decency. I don’t think we have seen or heard anyone like this for a long long time and certainly not someone who has been able to rise to this level of office. After the turmoil of the last eight years it almost seems unreal to see such a change. I feel, as do many, that at least there is a chance now of some real progress in building hope for future generations. Welcome back from rehab America, we are watching now for all the right reasons.
I’m now gearing up to head out next week and tour across Canada. Thats going to be cold, very cold, but so beautiful.
