I Have a Dream that someday my four little children will not be judged by the
color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Well, Dr. King, that day is certainly here. The entire evening was a delightful celebration indeed. Today, I listened to the Oath of Office on the radio as I was rushing home to hear the inaugural address. What a spectactular day of vareigation! Probably my highlight was the following from the President's speech:
Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.
So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.
This is more of a serious post, but these reverent occasions direct such an attitude. God Bless America and its new leadership, as well as the leaders of yesteryear!
P.S. Reuben has returned from his deathbed miraculously, and is almost in top condition again. Thank you for all your support. There are still copious amounts of moisture stuck in him, which freezes every morning so that not only does the exterior need to be scrapped, but the inside window as well. It's all very exciting.
