Tuesday, January 20
In 31 years on this planet, I haven't lived through many historic days. Pondering what I have lived through... The Challenger .... 9/11 ... most, if not all, were negative.
Today's historic, presidential inauguration was positively different. It was a beautifully historic, uplifting and expanding day for my fellow Americans, nation and world. I'm proud of the U.S.'s 44th president for enduring the arduous campaign, and I look forward to watching him inspire "the change we need." President Barack Obama's feat shows, "Yes we can." Thank you, America, for waking up out of your complacency and showing hope can win.
"It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me - And I'm feelin good." ~"Feeling Good" by Nina Simone
Found the poem by African American poet Langston Hughes that seems fitting for this monumental day.
I, Too, Sing America by Langston Hughes
I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.
I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed--
I, too, am America.
(Part 2 of President Obama's speech)
