Yesterday was a great day in history. Watching Barack Obama (whether you voted for him or not) being sworn in to office was exciting-brought tears to my eyes. He brings such a non-dramatic, down-to-earth sense of excitment and confidence to us as the people under him. He admits he can't do this by himself, that he needs our help and I'm excited to see what he will do. His wife seems to be the helpmate he needs-a good partner and mother to the girls. Her attitude also reflects "Let's get things done". Being white, I don't quite understand how deep the meaning of this is, but watching the people's faces yesterday showed the victory the black man has accomplished. I'm anxious to come back a year from now and reflect on what has happened in the past year.
What a world we live in!
