For You

A few months ago, Summer or Camryn broke a coaster at my parents' house. The coaster was attached to felt, so it stayed somewhat intact.

Today, I sat with my kids, mom, and aunt, and watched our new President get sworn in and make a truly impressive and inspirational speech.

As I stood to gather our things to go home, I glanced down at the coffee table. For the first time, I noticed the coaster and the cracks that were formed when it broke.



What a sign to see, on a day like today!

I'd like to encourage everyone, whether you are Republican or Democrat, black, white, red, purple, yellow, or green, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu... Let us all celebrate the idea of Peace.

Today was certainly a day for history books. To see such excitement was very.. exciting. I truly hope that Obama does do good for this country. I truly do.

I enjoyed watching some of the coverage from today, but after a while I was tired of hearing the same thing over and over. I do agree with the idea of peace.

Wasn't it just great to watch? Peace is definitely a theme I feel with Obama!
