Yesterday was a really emotional day for me. I am not exactly sure why. I found myself blubbering at one point. I was glued to the t.v. during the inaguration ceremony and in awe at the crowds on the National Mall. Just thinking about it again makes me tear up.
I think A LOT of it has to do with the fact that this is the first inaguration that I really cared about, being a mother of two young boys, living in the country that I want to take pride in again.
And A LOT of it has to do with the fact that I am scared for our country and for this man. He has SO MUCH to shoulder at this time in US history. We are NOT in a good place right now. And I am pretty proud of him for not “sugar coating” it in his address.
I KNOW that what I can do is pray for and have faith in the administration that begins their work today….
There is one man in the photograph above who I never would’ve thought I would put a picture of on my blog. I’m betting you can guess which one. But without getting too political, I do give a “shout out” to him for MAKING me want to be more interested in politics. And I’m really curious as to what his letter to the new President said. I mean aren’t you curious too? Talk about an interesting piece of prose!
Lastly, is it cynical that their walk down Pensylvannia Avenue made me nervous? Ah who cares, they looked great (well, minus the green shoes. ahem.)
