It was breathtaking. It brought tears. It brought laughter and hope. The inauguration of our new president, an historical event I shared with my sons, one which they will remember as a special moment in their books of life. They stood to salute the flag. The waved their flag as the crowds waved theirs. They listened to the speech President Obama delivered, Jari even commenting on how the 'th' sound was made. Kaeden watched me and asked if I was happy or sad as tears streamed down my cheeks. I told him this is a day in America that noone will forget. This is a day in which Americans are forced to look their part of disaster in the eye. Americans are forced to come together beyond bounds of race, religion, or belief. We have a new president. We have hope. Yes we do! And the promise of cake at the end was also plenty motivating!!!
