There are only a few times in my life that I really have understood that I was living in a historic moment, that I was witnessing history. Today is one of those days.
I often am cynical about our country, and our jingoistic leaders masquerading as patriots. Today, Barack Obama’s inauguration speech reminded me that there is something special about this country. We can come together, we can overcome our past, and we can build a new future.
Congratulations, President Obama, congratulations America!
