In his reelection speech, the President of the United States said:
“…while the road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in or hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come. “
I am optimistic about all that is yet to come to me and those within my circle. I am certainly optimistic about America the beautiful and all she needs to accomplish. Because…she remains the land of the free and the home of the brave.
The road has been hard. My journey was quite a long one. But…this is a new year! I have picked myself up, dusted myself off and as Alicia Keys sing:
It took a long long time to get here. It took a brave, brave girl to try
If I speak up when you're wrong
If I walk a little taller...
And it ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of free.
Don't be mad, it's a brand new time for me, yeah!
