It's a good day people, whether you voted for him or not I think we need to look around and realize that it is time for a change. A positive, hopeful change. Just watching all the festivities at the Lincoln Memorial and Washington monument have been an amazing insight into most Americans coming together for the same reason. Having the chance to celebrate their uniqueness, and diversity... individuals standing side by side for the greater good of our nation. I think it's important to not be naive about the challenges left at the White House door step, but it just makes sense to me to believe that things are going to get better. To believe that we have much more in common than the things that separate us. To engage in non-judgmental and peaceful actions. Even during the cheesy "we are the world" recreation of all the singers and famous people on the Lincoln Memorial stage, I couldn't help but be relieved, and will continue to overuse the word hopeful because I think it's a good thing to be. To have such a leader to look up to for so many people, I think it's great. The big Inauguration is playing of course all day long starting with what the Obama's had for breakfast (overkill?) so I decided to turn the station this morning only to have Matt walk in the living room and catch me not watching the news and Inauguration coverage but watching Cool Runnings the 1993 classic John Candy flick, (and really I could quote it for days).. feel the rythme, feel the rhyme, get on up, it's bobsled time! Happy Day!
