Saturday is the big day–I leave for Washington, DC and the inauguration of our new President, Barack Obama. I am excited to be witnessing this historic moment in history. Regardless of who you voted for, I think most Americans will be proud of this past election as it says through and through, THIS IS WHAT AMERICA STANDS FOR– the right for any hard working American even from simple means to achieve  their goals and in this case, the ultimate leadership position in our country.

My mother was a civil rights activitist in the 50’s and  60’s and she truly believed that all people are created equal. She would be excited to witness this day I am sure. Most of all she would be proud that I have such a strong interest in government and politics and that I understand the impact of this moment. She would also be proud that I have even met  Mr. Obama! Actually I have met many Presidents–Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush 41 and now Obama. WOW!! Whether you agree or disagree with anyone’s politics, it is an honor to meet a President. It is a very hard job and I believe they all try to do their best.

Maxine and Presidential Candidate Barack Obama- August 2008

Maxine and Presidential Candidate Barack Obama- August 2008

I wasn’t an Obama supporter at first but now that he is elected I intend to support him and do my best for our country. So far he has shown wise leadership, he is cool under pressure and he seems to genuinely understand people on main street. I think he will do a lot for K-12 public education. I pray that he has a very successful tenure as President and that he is able to bring our country out of this economic crisis.

I love DC and am excited to be visiting and participating in so many events for St. Louis, for Missouri and for the USA. I will be attending lot of events at historic places and I intend to take a lot of pictures and write about my experiences. It is my first inauguration and if all goes well, it won’t be my last.

Stay tuned for BEAR-aking news from the inauguration of  Barack (BEAR-ack ) Obama.

    It’s wild that you are going to the inauguration, and that you have met that many presidents! Have a great time! I wasn’t a supporter of his at first, either, but in reality he is very much like my first choice anyway, so when the general election came around and he won I was very excited about the possibility of things to come and better days for our country.

    By the way, I love the new look you’ve given your blog. It suits you well.

  21. Andi Rene'e Ochoa Says:

    why isn’t my cpmment posted?

  22. michaelmusicmaker3 Says:

    Hey guys! We probably shouldn’t express our political feelings too much because there are little children who read this and it could create some problems. Plus, it could create some hard feelings between some people and when people start celebrating the victory of Obama it kinda sounds insensitive. (Maxine, I think you’ve handled this very well)

  23. bearfun Says:

    I think it is so cool that you met Barock obama!Bye for now!

  24. megandecembear29 Says:

    Wow, that’s amzing you got to meet BEAR-ack Obama! Haha funny name. Silly Maxine… : )

  25. michaelmusicmaker3 Says:

    Hmmmmm. I just found out that Obama smokes. I’m not sure if I want my president addicted to drugs. Oh well…


    ps. Maxine, you rock!

  26. michaelmusicmaker3 Says:

    Sorry, that was a beary negative comment and I shouldn’t have made it. It is not what our president needs right now. What he needs is support. Bush left the country in a very bad position in a critical time.


  27. chanel4leafclover60 Says:
