A Brand New Day

Embedded video from CNN Video

Today is symbolic in so many ways. I watched part of the inauguration at the conference room in my office with my colleagues this morning, while my 5-year-old was watching it with his classmates and teachers at his school.

“We’ll be watching Barack Obama being sworn in as the President of the United States of America next Tuesday,” Genghis told me last Friday. I’m so proud of his sophisticated use of words.


We have satellite radio in the car. There’re a number of channels for each music genre. The ones we usually listen to are classic rock, chill out & reggae. During the election, the song below was played quite a lot in the Reggae channel & Genghis has picked up on it. Now every time we talked about Obama, he would sing, “Barack Obama, Barack Obama, Barack Obama, oi! Oi!”
