I blogged about our trip to see Obama when he was in Birmingham nearly a year ago. We had high hopes that day:
I’m glad we went, and I hope Riley will remember the day she danced and clapped and shouted and cheered for the person who could be the next president of the United States.
And today those hopes are on their way to being fulfilled. It wasn’t only about Obama becoming president; it’s about what he can and will do as president. It’s about what this country can become with him as president and the nation heading in the same direction, for the same purpose, to make this country the best it’s ever been.
Happy Inauguration Day! Now let’s get busy making changes in our own communities.
