The first book by Obama that was published in 1995, when he was elected the first African American president of Harvard Law Review. He was invited by the publisher to write a book about race in American. Instead, it became almost an autobiography

Wow, such a good review! Thanks a lot. After viewing your writing, I really change my opinion on this new President! Maybe he is a real hope of US.

Let's follow the steps of our fathers, and make our lives more meaningful!

Thank you Roger - i added a paragraph.

It happened to be the inauguration day and Martin Luther Kings Day - it is always good to celebrate hope!

How many years have you participated the "Walk for hunger"?

The good news about this year is that I feel very good that my leg is getting better. I still won't be able to walk very long. But I think for both Marathon and Walk for Hunger, I could participate some symblic miles! - Cheers!

rose for the review!! Where did you take the pics?
Have you read the 'audacity of hope' yet? Looking forward to your review on it. I don't know much about Obma but I hope he can be able to do the best he could to bring 'CHANGES' to America. God 祝你好运 Ameirca!
His half brother looks very much like him except with a few extra pounds. Laughing

书里面有个说法, 是肯尼亚的说法, 把我们称为'老老家' 的, 他们叫 Home Squared - "家平方", 于是还可以有"家立方".

比如说, 博士屯现在就是你的"家平方", 中国是你的家立方. Laughing

The two pictures were taken at the Death Valley.

I read the "Audacity of Hope" I think before he was elected. This one was written a few years back when he was elected the senator. So I think at the time he wrote the second book, he already had the intention to run for president (my guess). In this book, he went over and stated his view on some major political and social issues facing this country, for example, the devide between the two parties, values, constitution, politics, family, faith, race, opportunity and America's place in an international perspective.

The primary impression from reading the second book is that he holds what we Chinese call "中庸之道" - he showed that he could see where each side stood and stated his own position. I should read again now that he is the President.

握握手.

其实, 我想这里有孩子的人们都应该表示支持, 尤其是到需要身体力行的时候.

平日里也要让孩子形成这样的观念. 你想想, 咱们都把自然破坏完了, 以后的孩子跟本看不到真正的大自然, 多可怜啊.

为了孩子就要做从小事做起.

我打算: 新年里要多走路, 骑自行车, 乘地铁, 少开车.
自己开始件头发了, 就不为经济恢复做贡献, 因为我觉得经济危机挺好, 否则美国人民生活太优越, 都不知道物质追求是建立在消耗自然的基础上的, 这样过度的人为制造的需求是不可能持续的, 代价很大, "后果很严重" Laughing

我看经济危机以来, 美国人民也知道节省了, 这不是挺好吗?

happy happy
