it's a beautiful day

Years ago, when these countdown bumper stickers appeared, today seemed such a long way off. They offered only a faint glimmer of hope to those so disappointed by the reelection and guarantee of another four years of war.

I am blessed to be an American and truly thankful for the freedoms we enjoy, however not often since
the immediate aftermath of 9/11 have I felt proud to be an American. But today is a new day, and we inaugurate a new president. Not just "anybody but Bush," the underwhelming rally cry of 2004's campaign, but Barack Obama, a young progressive and our nation's first African American president.

I am proud of America today. I am hopeful, emotional, and prayerful. It is a new day and a new chapter in our history. May God bless America and our new president. May America bless God by living up to her best ideals, with liberty and justice for all.
