A new leaf

Whether or not you voted for Obama, this has been a historic week. I meant to write something yesterday about the inauguration, but that didnt happen. I think history is so exciting. This is such a special time in our lives, and I hope that I can remember how I feel. I hope that one day when my grandkids ask me where I was and what I was doing on the historic day of President Obama's Inauguration, that I can remember how I felt as I watched.

I wish the Obama presidency the best of luck and hope that I can do my part as a citizen of the United States. A couple of things that stuck out to me where the way that Obama's children rooted him on (giving him thumbs up and cute smirks), the way that he and his wife act around one another, they way that the President asked for everyone to be supportive and do their part in this society, the way that Aretha Franklin sang 'My country Tis of Thee', and mostly the sense of American Pride that I felt seeing close to 2 million American Flags waving in the sky as the crowds cheered for President Obama.

Love, Tamber
