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!


12:25- "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%!


  1. I loved this post!! We are very blessed to be a part of this historic day!!

  2. It sure has been a day for the history books.

    We're neighbors. I'm in Takoma Park, MD, and also wishing I could have gone. I had no-one to watch my 2 year-old-daughter, though, and I didn't think she'd make it for hours and in the cold. Still waiting for my partner and the seven year old to come home...

  3. I know...how exciting!! And you are so lucky to be right there in the thick of it!!

  4. it is an amazing feeling to see how far our country has come, whether you were for or against him with the election its hard to not be excited to see whats next.


Those laughing with me...or at me.
