Today marked a very special day in a place where most of you come from.
Barack Obama is the new president of America and he is the first black president!
He is the 44th president and the last one was George W Bush. Some people didn’t like him and are glad he is no longer president.
Obama won the hearts of many people and people love him!

I don’t know entirely what is happening in America, or what he plans to do because I dont live in America or near there. I live in the UK, so I’m hoping one of you will tell me.
There was going to be a special on TV about Obama today, and I was going to watch it. I had it all planned out! But In the end I missed it 😦 You guys called it a word…I forgotten what it was…Its in the comments.
I forgot all about the show. Many, many people I know were going to watch it. So I’ll catch up with them.
My teacher (form tutor) was very exicted to get home. She left school at lunch time just so she wound’t miss it! That shows how many people wanted Obama to win. Now that he is the president, everyone is very happy and hope that he will do his very best for the country which we all know he will!
Some people appose to the idea of selecting a Black president, because it has been white throughout hasn’t it? Other people say that is surely is time for a change and that change has come.
What do you think of Barack Obama?
