I don’t know about you guys, but I have a very good reason for wanting to be a better person in all that I do. Dr. King is smiling down on all of us right now, seeing one color and that’s that color of Hope.
Though I have a feeling President Obama won’t be able to do everything he promised, I have no doubt that he’s going to do his damnedest to try. That’s good enough for me.
I’m also thankful to be sitting home on my couch and watching the inauguration on TV. It beats being there in person where everyone on center stage looks like a speck of shivering dust. 🙂 And since NC has declared a State of Emergency with the 3+ inches of snow (I kid you not), I guess that means I’ll be baking cookies today.
By the way. Did anyone notice Bush strutting down the hall? That man has a bottle of Jack Daniels and a Stogy waiting for him when he gets home. 😆
One of my favorite lines during Mr. Obama’s speech…
Know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy.
This is true for everyone regardless of who you are, where you came from, or what you believe.
This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed — why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent Mall, and why a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.
By the way. If you missed the inauguration and/or would like a replay, hit up Kathy Calarco’s blow-by-blow commentary. It’s hiliarious! 😆
