God Bless America!


As I watch our nation celebrate the 44th President's Inauguration, I am so excited for our country. I see everyone, both Republicans and Democrats, smiling and hopeful for our country's renewal. It is a great day in America. In just a few hours history will be made as President-elect Barack Obama takes the oath of office. As a young girl in the Deep South during the 50's and 60's, it never seemed possible for this day to come! I stand with pride with fellow Americans to welcome our new first family to the White House. May God bless and keep them! I just have to add on this happy occasion that I LOVE Michelle's fashion sense. She has an elegant, down to earth style. Quite stunning!

Who would have thought so many people would be excited about politics. This is best thing to happen and I'm relishing in its grandeur.

Well, we know now that many Republicans weren't smiling, still aren't smiling. But I don't feel terribly sorry for most of them, they dug their own mess, doncha think? I am thrilled to see America wake up and get involved. If we can sustain the energy of the election, that in itself will be a memorable contribution to our history.
