Inauguration Day

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.

I don't blame you for not going.  I will have a front row seat and witness it all from my couch with the heat on.

No matter what party you voted for, today is a historical moment in history. No matter who you voted for you have to stand behind your leader and support the decisions or changes they are trying to make for the common good of the people.

Stacey Ann:  I was watching coverage of the Obamas show up at the White House.  I think the greatest part of all of this, is that it is so normal.  I am someone who grew up knowing that everyone was equal.  This really seems like no big deal...for MY lifetime anyway.  To my Mom, who lived through the Civil Rights movement, it is a HUGE deal.  For the Country, having a leader that has the ability to make a positive difference is more exciting to me.

David - it is definitely history

Chris - Its amazing how much the country has changed in a relatively short period of time since the civil rights movement.

Good call Stacey-Ann.  It looked really cold and crowed down there.  I am hopeful that this man can lead us to something better.  Today will be the first day of actual work and he has a lot to do.

Hi Stacey-Ann - the television coverage was unbelievable -- a sea of people! I can understand your decision, even though I urged you to go!! :-) What a wonderful day it was.

Stacey Ann, I was down there, but I couldn't have done it with children.  They'd have been popsicles in no time!

When I saw the motorcade going down an empty Pennsylvannia Avenue - 1 limo with the Bushes and another with the Obamas - headed from the White House to the Capitol, I just cried.  It was such a day.

Paddy - he sure does have a lot of work to get done

Mary - It was a wonderful day.

Patricia - I don't even know how I would have survived with the kids.  Was it awesome to be down there?

No matter where you were on that day, you had a wonderful vantage point. What an incredible day!
