Hallelujah!

I am so delighted to be alive for this historic election and inauguration. I'm loving the fact that every 4 or 8 years we ditch the old and give voice to a fresh start (I especially like sweeping out the Bush administration). What a radical idea democracy is. I'm getting so swept up in it all that I went out and bought an American flag - my first American flag.

Annie and I participated in a MLK Jr. march yesterday. Annie commented that it seemed "calm, passive" and it is interesting to not have a president to oppose. Although I do believe we will need to hold him firm to his promises.

Here are some photos from the march:

What a wonderful day.

    Did you see the woman (on TV) who woke her children, the day after the election, and told them that MLK's dream came true? Get me the tissue box!
