I am SO PROUD to be an American – Happy Obama day!
Posted on January 20, 2009 by yankeebean
I’m watching President Obama’s inauguration speech even as I type this and I am SO PROUD to be an American right now.
I won’t lie to you, there have been many times in my past 4 UK-living-years when I’ve down-played my American-ness, if only out of self-preservation. I’ve never gone so far to pretend to be Candian, but I’ve been tempted.
Here’s a question for all our awesome readers –> Do you think Obama’s leadership will spark a re-location of more expats back to the States? A little part of me wants to pack my suitcase and go set up back in the Midwest to help fight to keep America alive. I watched Obama’s latest YouTube speech and, I swear, I had to stop myself from looking for my passport.
basically, I feel FREAKIN’ AWESOME.
Are you proud, my fellow Americans? Look what we did!! And look what we’ve survived to get here!!
And now if anyone asks, ‘Can you?’ we can all proudly say ‘Yes we can!’
