    I did. It was amazing. Even if you don't agree with his ideology, you have to admit that he is an excellent speaker. My God, I am always so impressed by his speeches and the way he inspires people. My eyes have been glued to the tv all day!

    I consider myself blessed to have been born in America. Whenever a new president is inaugurated, I am amazed at the peaceful transition of power in our country. I told N*'s older brother on 9/11 that it was time for the people of my generation to step forward and do our part to end terror and tyranny and promote the goodness in us. President Obama and I graduated from high school the same year.

    While I do not hold an elected office in my community, I chaired a nonprofit organizaiton which assisted low income seniors and physically handicapped homeowners with property maintenance. I volunteered in N*'s school for years. I believe we all have a contribution to make to leave the world a little better place than we found it.

    I watched every second, and Tink did too.

    She thinks Michelle Obama is fashionable.

    I think today was historic.

    I wasn't going to watch. However, here at work they just installed 4 42" TV's above my HEAD. So, not only our department but many others were in the room watching. It was cute when he was being sworn in and he just stopped and stared at the man...that was too much to recite. Did everyone else catch that too. Then when he repeated what was to be said he flip flopped the words.
