Feeling a bit better and finally catching up on my dose of obama news.
Barack capped his Middle-East / Europe tour with a speech to over 200 thousand people this week in Berlin.
Supposedly people from all over the continent had travelled in to see him in person. Some of Obama’s opposition say that this proves how ‘foreign’ he is, and not suitable for leading America. I think his global appeal says much more about the state of the world than Obama himself.
People are longing for a different America to show up. I know I am.
Interestingly, an Israeli paper published a private prayer that Obama wrote and stuffed in the western wall.
Protect my family and me. Forgive me my sins and help me guard against pride and despair.
Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just.
And make me an instrument of your will.
