Did you watch it? (Or listen?) Did you see history change? What will you tell your children (or what did you tell them) about yesterday?
It only happens every four years, and there's still time (every media outlet will be rehashing things for days to come. Or there's YouTube. Or podcasts.) to watch/listen and take this opportunity to talk about history or the democratic process.
You know how I love fresh starts. And Inauguration Day is a much-less-arbitrary new beginning than New Year's Day. So I'm hoping for the best for the next four years, but one great thing about the democratic process is that if we don't like something, we can speak up.
In the meantime, a ran across a few fabulous posts yesterday that I just had to share:
- What does the Inauguration mean to you? by Janice Croze at 5 Minutes for Mom offers a great perspective and invites additional comments and links.
- She also posted Praying to the One in Charge…
- observations on inauguration day is a delightfully conversational post by Marla Taviano.
- Chanelle of making food. eating food. marked the day with simply stated thoughts and the beautiful photo above.
