Oh Happy Day!

This is not a political blog but I just have to say that when I woke up this morning, inauguration day 2009, it felt like Christmas.  The feeling continued throughout the day. As I was walking my dog I encountered this fabulous Obama display in a neighbor's yard. People honked and hollered when they saw my "Yes we can" messenger bag on my back as I rode to work. People smiled when they saw my inauguration T-shirt and my students sat captivated by the swearing in of their new president.  All day long I saw hope and joy on faces.  The part of Obama's inaugural speech that spoke to me was "the God-given promise that we all are equal, all are free and all deserve to pursue their full measure of happiness."  I interpreted that to mean he intends this to be a government and a people of inclusiveness.  Obama has challenged us to be engaged and involved in  making our community better. Hallelujah, let's do it!
