Inauguration Day - Proud to be an American

I got up and out of the rig early this morning so I could get to Curves and back home again as soon as possible. I wanted to watch the inauguration events! And that's what I did - all day. :)

As I have posted previously, President Obama was not my choice for the job. However, he was elected and I will support him as my president. And I have to admit I was moved by the ceremonies today. It is truly a phenomenal sight to see leadership change hands with respect and integrity. And we saw that today.

I will admit to a few tears as I watched President and Mrs. Bush leave in the helicopter with President and Mrs. Obama watching from the stairs. I can't imagine what both couples were feeling or thinking. Were the Bushes relieved, sad, ready? Were the Obamas anxious, a little fearful and excited? I only pray that both couples will be pleased with the direction their lives have taken.

What a country we live in! Until the next time . . .

  1. Well said Terry. I too didn't vote for him, but I am proud for how far this country has come in a short period of time. I was moved by the number of people that went to watch the event facing the cold weather. It was a moving day and I look forward to what lies ahead.

  2. I'm like you, wasn't my choice, but I sure hope he can do even a part of what he says he(or we) can do.
    I too had a tear in my eye to see George leave. He made mistakes, but he kept us all safe. Lets hope and pray Mr Obama can do the same. Take care.
