Finally, Inauguration Day is here! I’m watching it right now and its so beautiful I might cry. Change has come! His speech is so great, so simple but profound, not philosophical mumbo jumbo but straight, powerful words that he pronounces so well and speaks so strongly. He makes such a tremendous impact. I love his jab on Bush “We will lead once more!” :))

Other favorite parts…

“We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and HINDUS! And NON-BELIEVERS!”

He mentions Hindus! He mentions non-believers! Yes, yes, yes! That means so much to me, I can’t explain it.

“We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist”

“A man whose father 60 years ago could not stand in a restaurant, can stand before you to take a most sacred oath”

So many more! I still have to take it all in and calm my heart. Here’s to hope! Here’s to change! Congratulations to citizens of America! Congratulations to all Obama supporters world wide!

EDIT: Last I checked this is my space, and no one is dragged here to read and comment against your will, right? While I am glad to hear any comment contrary to mine for the sake of debate, I won’t tolerate it if its rude and idiotic and baseless. You don’t have to agree with what I support or write, and if you make an intellectual argument I’ll respect that. But this is not for anyone to spout groundless and nonsensical rubbish dripping with the type of sarcasm used by the hopeless. That is not an argument, its petulant complaining by narrow minded fools who are throwing temper tantrums because they didn’t get their way. And this is not a platform where you can throw that kind of anger around. I will feel no obligation to keep those comments.

To the revellers: Happy Inauguration Day! Happy new President! The full text of his speech is now available on CNN…
