Yes, it was simply a second inauguration for President Obama. And still, remarkable. Remarkable because our country transfers – or in this case sustains – power peacefully.
No violence, no uncertainty.
Today was a festive and poignant day with President Obama sworn in on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a holiday that didn’t even exist when I was born. Our president placed his hand upon two bibles, one belonging to Martin Luther King, Jr. and the other to Abraham Lincoln. The flags, the music, the parade, the watching of the First Lady’s wardrobe choices – even the comments about her new haircut – made for a day when we can be proud of how we select our leaders, how we celebrate their leadership.
A nice day in these United States – our America.
