In God we trust

The whole world has stopped to work in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening; that depends on the time zone you are. Barack Hussein Obama has become the 44th President of the United States of America. Millions of people have witnessed how a man “through had work and sacrifice” has touched the top of the list. We will still have to wait for the new Mr. President to achieve the goals that many countries have claimed for. Is Mr. Obama the response to the global crisis? Is Mr. Obama the answer to Spanish critical period? Has Mr. Obama the potion to avoid the point of no return? We do not know by now; we are due to give him time in order to see whether he is able to cope with this warming situation.

On the other side, his Presidential speech is not made of nonsensical words as other speechs are. Barack H. Obama is conscious of the set of circmstances that the United States undergoes: “[…] our nation is at war, our economy is in turmoil, and the American promise has been threatened once more. […] more americans are out of work and more are working harder for less […] and even more are watching your home values plummet.”

Even taking into account that his promises in order to fix the American economy up are a difficult task, we cannot ignore that his words have solid foundations on the family and moral values; we cannot shut our eyes to his love for his country (“America, we cannot turn back. Not with so much work to be done. […] veterans to care for. […] with an economy to fix […] and farms to save. Not with so many families to protect […]”).

And the most important, we cannot pass over to his pledge “to march into the future” illuminated by “the words of Scripture”, words to be “hold firmly”.

Mr. Barack H. Obama ends his speech this way:

“Thank you, God Bless you, and God Bless the United States of America.”

The same as in Spain, where we need buses to know if God exists or does not. God Bless Spain, anyway.
