Barack Obama Becomes the 44th President of the United States


X
At 12 noon today, Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America. His Inauguration Speech was full of hope and pride, as Americans of all colors looked on with equal pride and admiration. I think the plight of the opressed is hardly over, but this monumental event definately allows us to quantatively see the progess in our nation. And gives us a reason to work harder to break down every wall put before us.
