Barack and happiness

In happiness on January 21, 2009 at 1:07 pm

In his inaugural address yesterday newly sworn-in President Obama made a reference to Americans’ right to happiness. He’s clearly a man with deep religious conviction. It’s interesting to note he sees it as a God-given right.

 He said:
“The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.”
