Thoughts On Washington, Today

Photo from April 2008
Today is it, the day is finally here when The United States of America swears in its first African American President. Do we all realize how historic this day is? Where are we? 3rd grade, 7th grade, 9th grade, Pulsafeeder, Inc, Home. Hopefully we can all see the swearing in occurring around 11:50 AM. Today there is light fluffy snow here in Western NY. When it lands on the branches and stems of plants/weeds it as if it is lovely lace being woven over all of it.

So it has happened we have a new President of the USA and all is good. It was amazing to see just how many people have flocked to Washington DC to be part of this. To see all the joy inspired by this event. To see cooperation across the lines of everything imaginable. To think that this has been happening in this great country for over 200 years. To think as Past President Bush and his wife were leaving by Helicopter that some have left by Horse, how far we have come. Today is a new day, a new era, a new tomorrow. May it all be filled with Peace and hope and joy.
