Homeless and Obama

Perhaps I should return this blog back to it's original title: Homeless for Obama. Not having 24/7 Internet access, I rather missed out of MLK Day being declared a National Day of Service. Soon to be sworn-in president Obama did some painting at a teen homeless shelter.

"Yesterday, with Washington and the country eagerly awaiting the Inauguration, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and their families spent the day honoring the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. by serving others. After spending the morning with wounded soldiers at the Walter Reed Medical Center, President Obama traveled to the Sasha Bruce Youthwork shelter for homeless teens in Northeast Washington where he helped renovate "safe space" housing."
