McCain’s Concession Speech in Phoenix (Video)

Many have commented Obama’s victory speech to be subdued. Subdued and yet appropriate. Appropriate for a time that “united” and “move on” are more important than to celebrate the victory and pride.

And yet, you would found McCain’s concession speech is also truly remarkable. His speech is very classy, as the loser, to deliver the same message that his former opponent, the President-Elect Obama, has delivered. Some might even think McCain could have won, or at least get closer, if only he could be this classy during, but not after, the campaign.

MCCAIN: Thank you. Thank you, my friends. Thank you for coming here on this beautiful Arizona evening.

My friends, we have — we have come to the end of a long journey. The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly.

President-Elect Obama’s Victory Speech at Grant Park (Video)

Full transcript:

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

Jacob與老豆

可能因為剛做了哥哥,又更可能因為大病初癒,再加上又或者見慣了我們在家,故此近日 Jacob 上學時的情緒並不是太穩定,更哭了很多天,常常嚷著要回家。而在家發脾氣的次數也頻密了。希望這只是一個過渡時期。

亦可能因為以上同樣的理由,在這個期間我和他也比以往更多機會溝通和交流,感情也再進步了不少。正面地看,這一切都是成長的一部份。

如果永遠都能夠以正面去看每一個轉變,世界(或者起碼是內在的心靈世界)會變得更美好!

下面的相片,有些像友人形容的那種「赤裸真人報導博客」的貼相 feel。不過不好意思,但我真的有一點幸福想曬(這甚至可能與她/他們一樣,是個 blog 的唯一存在意義)。

Chester兩星期

這是 Chester 這兩星期的變化:

最頂一幅是一天大,第二行的是四天,第三行的是九天,第四行的是兩週。

看得出變化嗎?就算樣子上可能看不出,但生活上已進步了不少。他已懂用手撥我的手、鼻撩我玩,也對大家的歌聲,樣子很有反應,有時更會跟著我的表情報以(似是而非的)微笑!吃奶的份量也加到四安以上。開始有雙下巴。
