January 20, 2009

This has been a fairly emotional day for me. Seeing a new president sworn in and hearing him address the nation with a message about responsibility and hope and hard work, has made me think that maybe now I can go back to being proud that I am an American. Maybe I will even fly the flag again. It has been a sad eight years because I have felt that we were on the wrong track. I hope we are back on track and will proceed in a more "American" way in the future.

Right there with you Sharrie! It has been an exceedingly emotional day. Our company had TV monitors set up for us to watch the proceedings and it was wonderful to see how many of us just stopped work and went to see those historic moments in the making. Here's to the future!

Yesterday I decided that next time I am in town that I have to buy a new flag and fly it again too!

I TOTALLY AGREE! At long last, the light has come! As messed up as this country has become, it will take someone with the intelligence and strength of character that he has to put it back on track. This is his time. He is our best hope. I don't believe there is anybody else who could take the reins of the country during these difficult time and set it right like he can.
