Saturday Morning: The Whistle Stop Tour of The "O" Train and more.....Obama Countdown 2 Days to go Folks......Inauguration Schedules and More....
Hey Friends....I will be working all weekend, so only in and out of Blogatopia....but I will continue the Countdown....I have some posts below that are worth reading, one on Torture and War Crimes ( My letter to the President) and also I have posted Obama's Parade Magazine Letter to his girls.
We have much to look forward to....but we must not forget our Past and ALL that we have witnessed and seen....and been through....It is possible to have Hope and Courage and still acknowledge The Past....I hope that Obama knows that....
Update 3PM::: The Whistle Stop Tour::::
((I was supposed to go clean a house today...but the lady cancelled at the last minute...Soooo I got to stay home and watch the Whistle Stop Tour, Lucky me))....Really Beautiful...Thousands of cheering people lined up on the Tracks as it traveled the NorthEast...even in the Frigid Temps ( 5 degrees without windchill)...They were waving Obama Lawn signs and also waving Happy Birthday Signs to Michelle....Obama stopped and gave a speech in Philly ( which I have posted) and now there thousands assembled in Downtown Baltimore waiting to hear Obama......He looks so happy to be able to reach out to people again... And if you want to feel the excitement of watching The Train Go by watch this video that was made by the tracks.... Change is On the Tracks Now.....The "O"Train....
More From the "O" Train....Baltimore 4PM....Part One.
And this is the 2nd Part...really good

"The Rising" Bruce Springsteen...
((( For me...I will never forget seeing Obama in Cleveland with my son the first time...last winter..but then seeing him again in Downtown Cleveland with 83,000 people 2 days before the Election...and Bruce Springsteen played...and yes, he played "The Rising"...and This Land is My Land...and then watching Obama united on stage with his girls and Michelle and watching him introduce his girls to The Boss....it was special....very.)))
When Obama finished speaking and met the crowds...they played Ray Charles "America the Beautiful"...( CSPAN showed it)...
so I think we need to hear some Ray....
