DC is a buzz with excitement. I have never personally witnessed so much excitement and good will.
Many of you were trying to convince me to go today. However, I made the decision to stay with the kids instead. I don't like cold, I don't like crowds and I don't like standing still. In some ways I know I will regret the choice I made but I would also have regretted it had I gone. I tend to get light headed when standing still for a long time and there is no where to sit. I didn't think that would be a smart place to faint :)
I did drop my husband and my uncle at the Metro this morning. There were a reasonable amount of people and everyone was in high spirits.
The emotion that I feel is indescribable. I was almost in tears just watching the Obamas leave Blair House this morning. I hope that regardless of party affiliations the country can get behind this president and work to make this country the great place it can be - again!
One of the most exciting aspects of this is how people around the world are as engaged as we are here in the US. My dad stayed home from work today in Jamaica so that he could watch the coverage. That for me is the most significant impact of this day, its a chance for America to regain its standing around the world.
Tomorrow Obama will have to get to work and try to live up to some unreasonable expectations.
But today, we get to revel in the excitement of the moment and really experience the historical significance of this day. And since I chose not to experience this first-hand I will live vicariously through my husband.
