President of America's inauguration speech was a wonderful piece of English literature. I hope our rulers heard his speech and learned a few important lessons from it. Mr Obama was elected by Democrats of America but during his speech, he never mentioned his party once because, after the inauguration, he has now become the 44th President of the entire United Sates. Another important point to note is the discipline shown by all those who had come to hear him. Millions of people came from all over United States. Some walked miles to come here and waited for hours to listen to his speech. Hundreds of VVIPs came and sat on their respective seats without any untoward incident. They all listened to him in pin-drop silence showing him the respect he deserved. -Col (Retd) R.M. AKHTAR, Lahore, January 26.
