Hopeful

January 20, 2009

I wonder if I wasn’t the only person who found President Obama’s speech personally moving and inspiring. Faced with so many unknowns and scary times, his message of pressing on, and being brave and courageous and curious and ever-hopeful, ever-ready to turn the tide… I felt a conviction that all this will turn out okay. In my own life and in America.

I was so proud this morning, standing in the office training room watching the swearing-in, surrounded by my incredibly diverse coworkers, all of us wiping away tears and looking at each other with huge smiles and waves of hope surging through our collective hearts.

So freaking proud! And relieved. And Aretha was amazing! The hat!!

And now, can I just say that I loved Michelle’s dress, and I can’t wait to see what she wears tonight at the ball. I think Michelle is fabulous. Ain’t NOBODY going to cheat on THAT woman and live to tell about it! She’s got sass and I like that. I can’t wait to see what she does in her role.

Happy, happy day.
