Inauguration Day!!

Dear President Obama,

Congratulations on being elected the 44th President of the United States!

You can feel the excitement in the air even out here in the Middle East. This has got to be the longest 74 days ever! It has felt like all of the U.S. and half the World have been waiting for January 20th like it was their birthday. Waiting for you to take your oath. The pressure that you are experiencing must be extraordinary but one thing you have that not all President Elects have had is that the people of the U.S. and the World are not waiting for you to fail but rather expecting you to succeed. They KNOW you can do this. The two million people standing outside in Washington DC and the millions at home who are waiting for your to take your oath are proof of our confidence in you.

I'll be hoping along with the world that you will bring the United States back to where is has not been for many presidents now. Love your family and always keep them close to you as only they can support you in the way that you will need now.

I'm wishing you all the best in the next four years

And please if there is anything I or anyone else can do for you... All you have to do is ask.

Best Regards,

Lindsay

Your letter made me tear up a bit. So true, so honest and so full of hope! No one could have said it any better.

I'm watching the inauguration on CNN right now and your post is a great aside to what is onscreen.
