On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
- President Obama
My Mother called me, she said she laughed, she cried, she sang along. My daughters came home, one from school the other from Europe, dancing around to Michael Franti's tribute to our new President. Audrey asked if I cried, because she knew I did, and stated her drama teacher sobbed(the one who made the wonderful commencement speech for the class of 2006).
It's a new day.
