A new day, A new beginning

Today was an incredible day for all Americans. I must admit that my TV was tuned to all the ABC News coverage of the Inauguration. Just in awe of the events of the day, the change in our history books. In my lifetime, I've seen the first space shuttle launch and the first shuttle explosion, the Berlin wall is no more, who can forget Bill Clinton stating that he did not have "Relations" with that woman and of late, we have watched the finance industry and large corporations, ruin our economy. Within the last 200 years or so, Women were not able to vote and if your skin was black, you were considered a slave. Since then, Women won the right to vote, slaves were freed and the Civil Rights movement has come full circle. Now, it's time to start a new beginning. Time for our country to focus on what is important... The American People and the Values this county was founded upon.

I must admit that I was a little sad to see Barack Obama win the nomination, since I always hoped that the first African American President would be General Colin Powell. But hey, in the end - the right man won the job. Whether I agree with the Republicans or the Democrats, is irreverent. We are once again, even if just for a day, united and full of hope, that this great country will soon be one again.
