A Good Day
As I watched Joe Biden take the oath of office, I thought I could not have been more enthusiastic as I was at that moment. I wanted to jump for joy and shout "Farewell Dick". I secretly hoped that someone would wheel him off the platform right then and there. I watched in awe as our new Commander-In-Chief, President Barack Obama, gave yet another inspiring and eloquent speech. I wanted to cry out, AMEN. I literally did so at the end of the benediction (which was fabulous). I was pleased, as many were, to see our truly humble, dignified new president, escort the former first family to their final point of departure from the capital of our country. I still wonder how we as a nation allowed such an indignant administration to remain in charge for the past eight years. But alas, we now look ahead to challenges and changes that as daunting as they may be, will be handled in a manner in which we can all be proud. While none of us, nor the new administration, can fix the issues at hand, we can feel confident that we, as citizens of The United States of America, will be given utmost consideration for what is truly in our best interest as a people and as a nation. The two men in the White House now are not only intelligent and well-spoken, they are compassionate and committed to an agenda that benefits all Americans, not just their own itinerary. Praise God. This IS a good day.
