Audacity of Hope
I am so inspired by President Barack Obama. I am just completely enamored by his presidency. I think he is just a great person and I am so happy knowing he is in office and looking out for our country. My students read a short story about his life last week and then I decided I really wanted to read Audacity of Hope. Listening to it on my iPod allowed me to hear Obama read his own words. I liked that there were some candid parts that made me laugh out loud and other parts that were truly inspiring. I have to admit that there some parts that were just over my head, seeing as I really only have a basic understanding of our history in the last 50 years. When he mentioned specific names there were many I kind of recognized but wasn't familiar with. I think every American should listen to this book because it is inspiring. I love this guy!
