I'm at work, so I'll keep this short, but watching the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States stirred a lot of feelings. There were some trip ups (thanks Chief Justice!), but overall it was something else. His speech didn't have quite the sweeping grandeur of some of his others (there was a touch of it, though), but largely, it was somber and serious, while still inspiring us for the days and years ahead.

President Obama has a classy, intelligent manner that constantly shows in how he carries himself. He represents the idea that maybe, just maybe, people of various backgrounds and diverse cultures can successfully live together, work together, grow together. Maybe we can pick capable leaders purely on their merits and not on the color of their skin. His mere presence in the Oval Office (not to mention his uncanny ability to inspire and motivate) is a powerful statement that we as a people have made to the world. I'm glad to have been alive for this moment.

BTW, the Benediction was also very good. The last sentence was priceless. 8^D
