with hope on my shoulder

the backpack i carry everywhere i go wears a button with this image of barack obama.

a picture of hope.

a symbol of change.

countless koreans have noticed and with enthusiastic delight say, "OBAMA!! BARACK OBAMA!!"

this button has received not a single speck of negative feedback and continues to inspire excited conversation about the future of the u.s. with almost everyone i meet.

it puts a bounce in my step to discover how many people abroad are hopeful (and desperate) for a regime change in november '08.
