“The world watches and hopes” This editorial of the Guardian (London) coming a day after the inauguration of Barack Obama is an eloquent reflection on the historic significance of Obama’s Presidency. The Guardian uses some pretty powerful words to describe the event:

“The events of 20 January 2009 are the greatest celebration of a purely democratic achievement in human history.”

“The election of an African-American president marks the symbolic end of one of the most searing racial injustices in the western world.”

…few will disagree. This is a worthy read
