The Dawn of a New Day!

Green Husband had to work today, but he listened to the festivities on NPR. I headed to my staunch-Republican friend's house to watch the inauguration and we both agreed it was a momentous occasion.

I remember Maya Angelou's poem that she read for Clinton's inauguration and I think it is even more meaningful today.

...Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes, into
Your brother's face, your country
And say simply
Very simply
With hope
Good morning.
