What an amazing day. I am really looking forward to seeing how this man changes the face of America. He is a very charismatic man who speaks to the hearts of so many people.
"My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors."......
"On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics.
We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."
These two passages are the two that have stayed with me today. I sincerely hope that this man can deliver on the promise he has shown.
That's a bit of a departure from my usual blogging :-) back to normal tomorrow!
