Today was better than great!
Today was a pep rally for democracy.
For the world.
For the spirit.
The past and the future came together
and fused into one.
A climate of hope in the dead of winter.
Today a man my age stepped forward
and in taking the oath of office will forever
change the face of this nation.
A contemporary man with old world values
his youth and wisdom will unite generations.
His vision a beacon of direction in a country
that had lost its way.
I have waited 8 years for this man.
Many waited 46 years for this dream to be fulfilled.
Some, a lifetime.
Obama raised his hand and lifted a nation.
I will never forget today.
I wouldn't want to forget it for a moment.
It's a culmination of great moments that
has changed the world!
