Gaudium et Spes, 2009
Let's all wish him well. Let's all hope he lives up to even a fraction of his promise. Martin Luther once said that everything that is done in the world is done by hope. As for change, someone once said that politicians need to be changed frequently, like diapers - and for the same reason.
Whatever your political persuasion, I can guarantee that Mr. Obama will surprise you. He didn't define himself during his campaign - he let us project our longings and hopes onto him. If he disappoints us, can we deal with it?
"Yes, we can."
