Inauguration Day


If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.
~Barack Obama
– Chicago, Nov. 4th 2008

This is a most amazing day for me and I know for so many others in the world!

Awesome! I have more faith in our fellow man than I ever have before. This is such a huge step in working together and letting go of divisions. Like Obama said, "Childish things."

What a beautiful family he has too.
We should all pray to keep them safe and healthy.
