Get to Know the 2012 TIME Person of the Year

This morning, TIME revealed its Person of the Year for 2012, and the winner is... President Barack Obama. As the TIME staff explains on the website:

We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America. In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.

Congratulations to President Obama, who was contending with 8 other "short-list" candidates, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, both Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi.

As we all know that we are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes. Very less people are their who are working very much for their country and people. Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new revolution, in 2012. He comes not from a rich family but his studies and aim towards his carrier is big. he studied well in his university time. He found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.

My Choice for Man of The Year is 7 year old Eddie Cristobal.

This is a Fellow Traveler who, with the assistance of his mother, put his feelings for others into action and has raised thousands of dollars being used to meet needs of those who lost everything in Hurrican Sandy.

HE has done this of his own volition. No one had to ask, suggest, or threaten; He, at 7 years old, just took action.

While he will not be selected by Time Magazine, we can each take time to drop him a line and give our thanks,

Cathy Aumac-Bandy
