Inauguration

My thoughts about our new President will start on a topic that has been of primary emphasis: race. Perhaps it's because I'm newly married, but one of the thoughts I had when watching the inauguration today, wasn't just that we finally had our first black President...it was that all the children born from this day forth, will be born into a world where the thought of an African-American President of the United States was never a dream, but a reality. For their entire lives, their thoughts on this country's racial history will start at the moral stain of slavery, and come to America's first African-American president. For their entire lives, they'll potentially have a much greater sense of resolution, and recovery on the effects of this country's racial subjugation. This is such a beautiful prospect...

Other thoughts about the inauguration:
Simple Gifts was an excellent choice of song, and Malia and Sasha are sooo cute! O.K., I'm done gushing about the Obamas...
