I'm not american, but i do feel american politics affect my life over here in the U.K. I, as a general rule, don't watch tv, only listen to the news on the radio and have a general allergy to politics and all the lies that spew from that area of our lives, whether we support the policies/politicians/party or nay.
Yesterday, however, i decided to turn on the tv to witness this historic moment in world history. As I listened to this man, saw the incredible crowd, the hope shining on everyones faces i have to admit, i felt optimistic too. a little glimmer of hope slowly began to flicker inside me.
I know that politicians are well versed in the art of speaking for a long time without having much to say, it comes with the territory. Despite this, however, this man had a lot to say. He didn't put a whitewash over it, he said that times were going to be tough before they got better. There were very little rose covered titbits given out to sugarcoat the truth, it's going to be a long, hard slog to get back on your fee again and undo the damage that his predessesors policies had done. No carrots dangled before the donkey to give a nation some kind of hope that would always be out of reach.
Yesterday i felt hope, not just for a nation but for the world. If your new president does remain true to his ideals, does keep his promises and continues to fight for what he believes in thn i really do believe that this world can be a better place for us all to live in xXx

Hi HM, Don't worry I don't think your stalkerish! lol. I met Kate West at the Artemis Gathering last year. If you get a chance to go to the next gathering its fab, especially Damh the Bard. I'm having Glastonbury withdrawl symptoms at the moment, it seems such a long time since I last went. I'm missing my regular visit to the Rainbows end cafe. One day I too wish to live in or near Glastonbury with my own little bit of land so I can GYO and have chickens. One day!

YES WE CAN, HOPE THAT IS.
WITHOUT HOPE WE ARE ALREADY BEATEN.

IT WOULD BE NICE TO THINK THAT ANOTHER COUNTRIES POLLATICS DOESN'T AFFECT US BUT WE LIVE IN A SMALL WORLD NOW, BEFORE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IT PROBABLY SEEMED LIKE A MASSIVE PLACE.

BUT HERE WE ARE SO FAR AWAY FROM EACH OTHER AND YET WE CAN TOUCH EACH OTHERS EMOTIONS.

WHAT A SMALL SMALL WORLD.

WHAT DO WE HAVE LEFT IF WE DO NOT HAVE, HOPE, FAITH AND LOVE, WITHOUT THOSE THREE IS NO CHANCE OF PEACE ON EARTH AND I DON'T MEAN AN INDAVIDUALS OWN INNER PEACE, I MEAN THE SORT OF PEACE THAT THIS PLANNET HAS NOT EXPERIANCED SINCE THE DAWN OF MAN.
I ASK MYSELF THE SAME QUESTION ALL THE TIME, WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST TOLLARATE EACH OTHERS DIFERENCES AND GET ALONG, AFTER ALL WE ALL JUST WANT THE SAME THING.
TO BE HAPPY AND HAVE A SAFE LIFE FOR OUR KIDS AND HOPE THAT THEY GROW UP AND HAVE THE SAME AND SO ON.

PS: THERE IS A SAYING.

WHEN AMERICA SNEEZES, THE WORLD GETS THE FLUE.

WE ARE ALL CONECTED SOME WAY OR ANOTHER.

CHEERS AND BIG HUG TO YOU AND YOURS.
