The Inaugural Sea

I've been on the mall in DC on the 4th of July (best fireworks ever!). That's nothing compared to this... the crowds awe me and inspire me.

A few months ago, just before the election, DH had a conversation with a man from central Africa. The man asked him how many people DH expected to be killed as a result of the change in administrations. Talk about reality check. We are so blessed to live in a country where a change in power is greeted with peaceful crowds and not unspeakable violence.

May God bless Barack Obama and Joe Biden, keep them safe, and guide them as they lead our country. May they lead us into a new era in America, where the dignity and respect for all persons (in all stages of life, and in all economic classes) is restored.
