It is wonderful to see changes being immediately implemented. It is equally as wonderful to see the enthusiasm with which President Obama and his team are embracing the work before them. It is a week that has already made history.
I want to be one of the Americans to say how proud I am to see such a co-operative effort from an Administration in the White House. I do not know all your names, so please post a complete list of the team so the people can join in thanking each one of you.
May God bless and keep each of you in your work as leaders of a nation so great as America. May the Lord bless you with continued energy and inspiration to meet the challenges ahead. May the people that you need come forward to embrace this unique opportunity to work in an open government that is unprecedented in America.
I hope to post a Week in Review tomorrow, so check back to see what I compile. If you want to contribute to this week in review post, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll write it together. It will be a nice part of the Barack Obama blog.
Thanks to all of you in the Administration in front of and behind the scenes. I am proud to be an American.
