Youthful residents give their opinions of Obama’s inauguration

Obama can change lives

Barack Obama is going to change our lives by trying to help our economy and the war in Iraq. I hope that he does help the economy because I don’t want to go into another great depression, because if we do then it will be hard on everyone. There would not be enough jobs, hardly any food or anything.

If Obama does keep his promise and pulls the troops from Iraq then we won’t lose more money than we already have and the troops will be united with their families. Families will no longer have to go days, weeks or even sometimes without hearing a word from their loved ones. That is why I think Obama will be a great leader for our country.

Obama’s election is historic

On Jan. 20, 2009, the world changed forever. Most people thought Barack Obama would not win the presidential election, but the night of the election the world was in shock. Now that he is president it will be an effect to everyone’s life, well at least in my eyes.

This will change my life because most of the past presidents didn’t do what they said they were going to do. Hopefully, Obama will follow through with his campaign promises and help people. There are people who work and yet can’t provide for their families. Obama becoming president will affect my life quite a bit because I am not rich nor am I poor; however if Obama does what he says he will do then everybody should be satisfied. Obama helping the economy would not only help me, but it will help everyone else.

Some people doen’t like Obama because of his race, but people shouldn’t judge him by the color of his skin but by the content of his character. They should just think about “does God judge people because they are a different color?” In God’s eyes we are united as one, it doesn’t matter if you are black, white, purple or red. Overall, I feel great about who won and lif Obama does what he promised this world will be GREAT!

  • LETTERS: Governor must take action on jailer issue When I first read Sunday’s (April 25) edition of The Daily Times I had every intention of responding to Ronnie Ellis’ article “UK Professor Gives Coal Crowd Something to Talk About,” and encouraging our community to read Silas House’s book, “Something’s Rising,” to learn more about the ill-effects of the coal industry’s use of mountaintop removal.
