Hope Over Fear

Has our new president been reading my blog?

Or maybe his speech writers?

If I could summarize Barak Obama's acceptance speech this morning, it would read:

We must overcome our fears of failure, and simply look forward - hands reaching out - with hope for the future.

What obstacles this man has overcome to reach the place he stood today! What obstacles he will face during his term as president! Is he scared? Probably. But he appeared more than ready to face it all as he proudly walked through the capital builing on his way to the inauguration.

Facing our fears - whatever they may be - is an important part of what we must all do. Today. This week. This year! It's not that what you face is not scary - of course it is! But you must face it nonetheless.

Go read Obama's acceptance speech here.
