Hope Has Entered the Building
I'm a bit at a loss for words after watching today's inauguration address by PRESIDENT OBAMA. (God, it feels good to type that . . . let me do it again . . . PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!) It was a truly inspiring moment to witness history, to feel that lifting of despair and the emergence of hope. Now, I'm not one of those people that thinks, "Bam! Bad times are over!" I know that it's going to take some time to pull this country out of the muck in which it finds itself mired so desperately, but at least I have faith that the person behind the wheel has an idea of how to get us out. It's just a question of the rest of us having the patience and trust to let him do the job.
