The winds of change

While I am thrilled about Obama being sworn into office today, I wasn't going to post on the inauguration but just a minute ago I logged on to yahoo and saw this.

I saw this photo on yahoo when I turned on my computer tonight and I was moved to tears. I see so much in this picture. The love these two share for each other, determination, inspiration, courage but most of all I see hope. Hope for a better future. Hope for change. Hope for all Americans to again be proud of our great nation for its diversity and opportunity. I have always been proud to be an American, but it has been a long time since I have felt pride for my nation. Today I feel that pride again.

It is really nice to see a great marriage! It's so much better then watching Hollywood marriages that fall apart before the honeymoon is over.

From France: I can only agree with you! I am French and I feel also this great hope you feel, and pride for you and us!
Thank you and let's cross fingers for Mister Obahama.
Have a beautiful day!
