In my earlier years I was involved in many charitable organizaions. With school, work and children I had lost connection with most of these. When I listen to President Obama speak I feel the desire and need burning inside of me to rejoin the organizations and do as much as I can to make the world a better place. I may not have very much in the way of finances, or time for that matter, but I am taking my children to the homelss shelter to serve food to others and trying to instil in them a strong since of community and a desire to help those in need. When I think about President Obama I become a little emotional because I finally feel connected to the government, our government and the responsibility to help support our nation and the people of the world.
