I watched the ceremony last night. It was like watching the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Di. The whole world looks pretty hopeful. I think I had better just keep my mouth shut, I don't want to rain on the parade. I am happy the US has a smooth transition of power. I am also happy that the hopes and dreams of so many (to see all the barriers broken down) have been somewhat realized. All men and women are created equal...or at least this is how it should be. I think that the expectations placed on our President are too high. Realistically, no one person could fulfill what people are projecting on him. But maybe a change will help the confidence crisis the world is facing. That can not hurt. I wish him well!
For me seeing the sea of people was like seeing the number of babies aborted every year in the USA. There are allot of missing faces, missing potential. I pray he does not pass the freedom of choice act.
