If I had to use one word to describe the rally on Friday I would say amazing!!! President Barock Obama came to my hometown and spoke at the G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium in Woodbridge, VA on Sept 21. Below you’ll find some photos I snapped while listening to his speech, you’ll also find some quotes from his speech (thank you inside NOVA) enjoy!!!
Quotes from his speech curtesy of Inside Nova
“After a decade of war, it’s time to do some nation building here at home,”
“The path I’m offering is not necessarily going to be quick or easy. It’s going to take more than a few years to solve challenges that have built up over decades,” he said.
“We succeed when folks at the top are doing well, but also when folks in the middle are doing well, when folks who are fighting to get to the middle are doing well, when more people have a chance to get ahead and live up to their God-given potential,” he said. “I will refuse to ask middle class families to give up their deductions for owning a home, raising kids just so millionaires get another tax cut.”
“We don’t think that anybody is the source of all our problems, not welfare recipients, not corporations, not unions, not immigrants, gays, not all the other groups we’re told to blame for our troubles,” he said
“Nobody who has fought for us ought to have to fight for a job when they return home,” he said.
This last image was taken by Steve Helber on Inside Nova, its very special to me because the little girl with the bun is one of my favorite cousin’s sitting on top of my shoulders… What a day!
