I watched the presidential inauguration today. I enjoyed the pageantry and Obama's speech as well as some of the other events.
And wow!! What a lot of people in attendance! I wouldn't have been able to deal with the crowds, stand around on my feet for hours, and be in sub-freezing weather -- guess I've gotten too old and soft for all that. So I was one of many to watch it on TV. (I'm not sure which was worse -- the conditions I would have encountered in DC, or the incessant drivel I had to put up with from the TV commentators!)
I'm hopeful things will start to get better in this country and the world -- maybe sooner rather than later. Please join me in hoping!
