inspiring hope

first, i'd like to preface this by saying that i'm not into politics at all. but here we are.  a moment in history. and no matter what the outcome of the next four years, this day will forever be remembered and talked about.   i just hope that obama (and others) live up to their their promises. time will tell. if nothing else, it's going to be an interesting four years...that's for sure.  personally, i'm full of hope; hoping for the best--in not only our president, but in all of us.

yesterday, while on the treadmill at the gym, i saw ashton and demi's "I Pledge" video.  have you seen it?  if not, you can check it out here.  i seriously hope that these celebrities aren't blowing smoke out their ass, but very possibly a few of them (or more) are. but with that being said--i hope that, with the influence that some celebrities have on others, the video can and will inspire do give just be a bit better in some way...any way. and to be fair, don't just watch the video; read the comments. 

what do i pledge? i pledge to be a better mother and wife (blogging for another day). once steve is back, i pledge to do monthly community service--as a family. i pledge to be more patient and a kinder person to others.  i pledge to think positively and give this new president a chance.

p.s. b/c i heard the obamas talk about it on the news a military spouse, i'm ready for the support that our president and his wife speak about for our veterans and their families. we will see. we will see.
