We took a break today from our workshop to watch the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. After his speech, 3 of us walked out in the cold air to just share a hug, a couple of black women and a First Nations woman. Tears rolled down our faces. As I've said before, I just never believed I would see it in my lifetime. No matter where you stand politically, congratulations America!

A documentary to check out if you're so inclined.

It truly does stir a spark of hope, doesn't it?

I'm proud of this country for the first time in a very long time.

Like Pam, and Michelle Obama, for the 1st time in a long time, I am proud to be an American. For who America is today, not just for what it was founded upon. Finally. Awesome is right.
