History in the Making

>> Tuesday, January 20, 2009

I'm spent most of the afternoon so far watching the inauguration coverage on TV. I found it so incredibly moving watching the shots of the crowds - how excited and moved and inspired the people were as they watched their 44th President of the United States being sworn in.

I actually had tears in my eyes as I watched Barack Obama give his first speech as President. Watching history in the making and feeling the sense that change is here - what a privilege to be able to witness that moment.

I can't even imagine what it must feel like for President Obama right now - to have that amount of pressure and expectation on him. He seems to have an amazingly supportive and loving family behind him though, and with an 80% approval rating I know that most Americans are sending a lot of love and prayers and blessings his way and that is a huge gift to have as he undertakes this challenge.

Here's to America, here's to President Obama, and here's to a well needed change!

This is funny because I was just writting a blog about almost the exact same thingyesterday but I couldn't put it into words. I spent most of the day watching the inaguration as well (except of course Claire had a meltdown right in the middle of his speech so I couldn't watch it all!). I just could not believe all of the people that were there...it was just breathtaking! I'm glad I had the opportunity to watch it live because it definitely was history in the making.
