January 20, 2009

My mom called yesterday and shared the following gem, which I had to pass on.

Rosa sat so Martin could walk;
Martin walked so Obama could run;
Obama ran so our children can fly!

It sums up how I feel today. I genuinely got choked up telling Ethan why today is so important and have had chills more times than I can count watching the ongoing coverage.

I'm proud of my fellow citizens. I'm proud of America. I'm thrilled to have a leader we can all be proud of. And maybe most importantly, I'm hopeful for my children's future.
