My Thoughts On This Historic Day
8:45-Woke up and am amazed by the amount of people see on tv at the National Mall
9:30-I hope the lady that fell on the tracks of the metro is ok. I'm sure the crowds are overwhelming
10:47-Michelle Obama looks GREAT in her personally designed outfit. Go girl!
11:03-The more I watch, the more I wish I had went out there
11:15-Wow, 39th President Jimmy Carter looks great! How cool to see the past Presidents
11:22-Were the cheers for President Clinton or Hilary Clinton? :o)
11:55-Listening to Aretha Franklin sing and watching people cry on tv has brought tears to my eyes
11:57-Joe Biden is swearing in and I'm a feeling giddy inside
12:04-Everyone standing for swearing in...I'm crying, this is so exciting!
12:05-IT'S DONE!! CANNONS FIRE!! CHEERS!! TEARS!! BARACK IS OUR 44TH PRESIDENT!!!
12:25- "The time has come to set aside childish things."
"...all this we can do, all this we will do."
"Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America - they will be met,"
1:10-Executive 1 just flew over our base on the way to Andrews AFB(I managed to snap a photo but hurt my foot running down the stairs-no worries, Lael patched me up)
1:17-Bush Family arrives at Andrews AFB and on their way home to Texas
Wow, this morning has been one I'll never forget. I know people who supported Barack from the beginning, I know people who thinks electing him was a horrible mistake. But what I know along with these people is that we should be honored to be apart of history. To witness it, to participate, and to live in this free country.
Mr. President, I wish you the best of luck and like from day one, you have my support 100%!
