The End Of An Era, And The Birth Of New Hope
I know alot has already been said about the inauguration today, but I just thought I would toss in my 2 cents...Today we all witnessed history. Say what you will about the huge ceremoney, and the judge messing up on the words during the swearing in...today marked a turning point for the country. So many hisotrical touchstones were reached today such as minority being inaugurated as president. Today also demonstrated that great hope can shine through the state our country is currently in. Yes, the economy has gone to shit, we are fighting a pointless war, and we are viewed as power hungry enforcers around the world, however for the first time in 8 years I felt optimistic and hopeful about our countries future. Naysayers be damned, their is no person in this country who was not emotionley moved when they saw all the different people, from all different walks of life, united under a common sense of unity and hope.
