What a day!

We’re celebrating the Inauguration of our 44th President at our house today. Rob and I are thrilled that R will grow up in a country that elected a man of hope to the White House. In this time of economic crisis with our country at war, we need change, we need a future where we can realize our potential, and we need to create a better world for our children.

Rev. Joseph Lowery’s Benediction at today’s Inauguration was lovely and one we feel deserves special recognition. We’re grateful he was invited to speak (especially since the Invocation by Rev. Rick Warren was so disappointing and so offensive), and we encourage you to watch it, if you missed it earlier today.

P.S. As I write this, I am watching CNN’s coverage of the Hawaii-Illinois Ball…and keeping an eye out for my brother who is there!
