America makes history

Tuesday the world will witness what the American dream is all about. Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president. He is the people's choice and he represents how far our country has come.

Obama promises change and offers hope. He takes office during one of our country's most challenging times. America's economy is the worst it's been since the great depression. We are at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. And, our country's healthcare system is failing many Americans.

Whether you supported Obama or not, as Americans we all need to rally around our new President. During the next several days, you will have a chance to witness this inauguration on WLOX News and wlox-dot-com. Obama's inauguration is one of those defining moments in our lives. One that will be remembered for generations to come. We encourage families to sit down together and experience this historic moment.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com, or post your comments below.
