The Cusp of History

This day has finally come. The beauty in this moment, in every moment today, is the fact that our forefathers did dream this moment, as Dr. King did.. the peaceful transfer of power between two parties, two very different men, two different tides coming together in harmony. Moving trucks outside the White House. Change.

As I watched on my own jumbotron (in pure frustration for not having the helicopter that I need to take my 19-mo old and I down to the center of the Capitol steps, wait for us, then take us back home,) I saw a few headlines underneath the picture of the massive crowds. One, sadly, was "Power sharing talks break down in Zimbabwe." A stark reminder of the alternative. This is what makes our country so great. Our citizenship so special. And this day bursting with greatness.


Keep up with it here, the Inaugural Blog.


Meanwhile, even my toddler is feeling the spirit. GOBABA.

It would be awesome to be there! Now if I can just get mine to nap so that I can watch coverage instead of PBS cartoons...

We are also watching it all on TV today.

Very exciting. It's good to see people excited about American again.

BTW, when I played your video this morning, Liam came running. We watched it five times, and after it stopped each time, Liam insisted, "More Charles?" Thus the multiple viewings! We may have a man-crush on our hands! HAHAHA! :)
