Horsey’s take on Inauguration Day…

Good morning, Netizens...

David Horsey is in Washington, D.C. to observe and comment upon the Inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama and, as in so many of the times, he posted this cartoon this morning, which seems to capture and perhaps typify the mood of the country.

With an estimated 2 million people in Washington to celebrate Obama's inauguration, it will be the biggest, most-celebrated event in most of our lifetimes. While the dominant mood across the country appears to be jubilant optimism, Horsey's cartoon seems to imply relief, more than anything else, and I concur. It is time to put the Bush Administration behind us, to move forward into uncharted territory, and for a time, celebrate history unfolding before our eyes.
