President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace prize in Oslo, Norway today. He is such an inspiring, influential, brilliant and humble man - and I feel at ease hearing him speak.
He spoke from the heart as he did not seem to look down at his papers once during his whole speech. Maybe they'd hidden some teleprompters along the walls or something - but I sure couldn't figure it out.
Mr. Obama gave me chills, as if I was watching something so historically important in the future - and of course, being the first African-American president and actually born in Hawaii (so - first Hawaiian president too!), I quite was.
What an experience - and I watched it on television! Check out this CNN link of the coverage from today :)
I love you, Obama! Keep up the amazing work! I can't wait to see out the future with you in office and your First Lady Michelle, most amazing fashionista since Jackie Onassis Kennedy ;)
