Free at last, free at last

Thank God Almighty we are free at last.

We have been given a new chance at governing this country. We have been given a new chance at becoming the nation we once were before the evil empire took over 8 years ago. We all have to chip in and help our nation recover from the divides. We can all do it. Yes we can.

Millions show their thanks by standing in freezing weather to see this blessed event.

This is such an exciting day. I've never cared much about presidential politics because I feel so removed. But this time, I feel engaged. I love the Obamas! And Joe Biden, too!

I cancelled science class today(all 5 teachers in my unit did) so my kiddos could watch the inauguration. We emphasized respect; no matter how they (or I) felt, I didn't let them boo for Bush. (Now that I'm home, I'll join in a chorus of Free at Last with you!)

My 3rd grade daughter, attending public school, had classes as usual today. I found this surprising considering that our local public school's student body is more than 65% minority. They were off yesterday for MLK day,go figure.
My 5th grader attends a private university prep school. She spent most of the day in front of a television. Truth be told, I'd rather her day had continued on the regular schedule. I don't pay $600 a month for her to spend a day in front of a t.v. We have several of those at home, along with the record feature. If she had been interested, I would have recorded so she could have watched later.
A half-white, half-black man took office as our President. Sorry, I don't see that to be as big a deal as some. What about the hundreds of children who are being blasted off of this planet in war zones and the ones starving to death daily? They don't get an entire day or air-time on network t.v., do they?
Regardless of the fact that our President is now the color of weak chocolate milk instead of the color of whole or 2% milk, we yet again have a man in office who can't remember the last time he had to balance the family checkbook before going to the grocery store to buy a pint of milk, dozen eggs, and loaf of bread.
It's is cute to see the excitement of the fools who think today is a brand-new day of change, happiness and rainbows, though. Obama will have 4 years and then be declared a failure because no matter how hard he tries, no one can fix the state this so-called union is now in.

Gee Ame, negative much? Sorry you can't see the difference between the evil empire of the past 8 years and Barak Obama and the future 4 years. It must be awfully depressing to be this negative without any hope at all for the future. I'm sorry for your pain.

While I recognized the day as historic, and I am hopeful for the future... I'm not a believer...
Let us see what happens when this man is challenged (and he will be) Let us see what happens to his popularity when he fails at something (and he will). What then? And how is it that one unites a country by setting themselves apart? These are things that make me go "Hmmmm"

I have never watched a full on election day before and I watched yesterday with hope in my heart and tears in my eyes, while cuddling with my son and chatting on Twitter with others experiencing the very same thing.

I came over here to tell you that you rocked the comment on the BlissDom 'Faith' conference post. Your response was brilliantly written and I was cheering by the end of it.
That is all ;-)

Rachel, The funny thing is, it's gone. She took it down. Because I spoke the truth about Blogher and you're never allowed to do that. So not surprised!
