Stay True to Yourself

Yes, President-elect Obama, we all want a piece of you. Yes, you made promises, commitments and indications. Yes, the weight of history is on your shoulders, and possibly even the future of the world. Yes, you're a "first." Your Presidential page is blank, but filled up with expectations in ways totally unprecedented. But never forget, we voted for you because we believed in you. We believed in your sincerity, in your courage to even try to run as "yourself" and then to win. That is whom we all voted for. If you remain you, then your word will remain true.
