IYA 2009 – Go 44!

Posted in IYA2009 at 16:59 by Kathleen

Like the rest of the world, it seems, I watched the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the USA. I sincerely hope that he can live up to the wave of change he has triggered.

Quite notable for me was this part of his speech:

We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.

Yes! Let us restore science to its rightful place and put education at the forefront of our priorities. My perspective as a Canadian living in the United States is that the priority is guns and war, and fear. Americans can do much better than guns and war, they have shown it in the past, I hope they can show it again through this new administration.

Go 44!
