A New Beginning

File Under: The Day Has Come

Barack Obama is finally the President of The United States. What an historic day for our Country, what a beautiful day. I was fortunate to be able to view the swearing in from the conference room at work. I watched it with a couple coworkers with not much talk. We just watched and listened and took it all in. We clapped when the crowd clapped. It was nice.

I feel great about this day. I know it doesn't mean that all of a sudden everything changes, all of the gloom caused by the previous administration doesn't just go away, but we have someone with a fresh vision and the will to try to make things right.

President Obama's speech was moving and beautiful and it made me feel hopeful again. Seeing the millions of people there, witnessing history and waving American Flags, it made me proud of our country.

Here's to a new beginning! Cheers!
