A New Day

It's official. Barack Obama is now President Obama and I couldn't be happier. I've waited for this day for eight years for purely political reasons. The end of the GWB era is something I voted and wished for four years ago. When he was re-elected, I mourned for weeks. Four more years? How could I endure it? I was so glad to get through the first four and the thought of another term put me into what I can only describe as a mild depression. It sounds melodramatic, but it's true. It was short-lived. I got on with my life of course, and the world didn't end. But it changed, dramatically so, especially in the last year of his term.

Obama inherits a steaming pile of crap, let's face it. But I honestly believe he is ready to face it, take it on and do the best he possibly can to turn things around. It won't be easy and it won't be fast, but I think we've turned a corner. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this and for the first time in a long time, I'm proud of my country and my president. Corny, but true.

We did it. We did something I didn't think we were capable of doing. Just think of what else this country is capable of.
