Our Long National Nightmare Is Over

We hoped and prayed and worked for this day. It's now come and gone, and couldn't have been much better.

Obama's truly classic speech wasn't a barn-burnin' pep talk. It was a sobering look at the work ahead of us all. Of my many favorite lines from his speech...was this one:
"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things."
This was a challenge to the entirety of Washington, letting them know that business as usual isn't good enough anymore. I hope his personal power and the will of the people behind him can cause the change that's so critically needed in Washington DC.

A toast to the new administration, in hopes that his next 4 years will reflect the successes of his 1st half day in office.

Sounds a lot like my Woodstock experience. At least you weren't covered with mud from rocking a car out of the goop it was stuck in, after spending a night in a sleeping bag in a field in the rain with no tent and no food (after being turned away from the gate to listen to the music you came to hear, even though you had a ticket, because people without tickets got there first). Congratulations on surviving Inauguration 2009 with good humor, Sally!
