A Great Nation

As I sit here watching the Inauguration I am overwhelmed by the blessing that it is to live in the United States Of America. Regardless of political views the democratic process is wonderful to watch. The fact that every 4 years we have a chance to CHOOSE our leaders. And those leaders can take office in peace is awesome.

We were discussing the Inauguration last night with the boys and I was a proud mom when one of my boys said that he was so so excited to have a black president, and that he just knew that Martin Luther King Jr. was excited and proud. The boys find it hard to believe that there was a time not so long ago when people were treated SO poorly because of the color of their skin, and I am so glad that they find it hard to believe. I'm glad that all of my boys will never thing it's weird, or strange or new to have a president that is anything other than white! God Bless America!

I agree! Whether I agree completely with him I am excited to have a new president and think it's really cool to watch it all take place! Now, we'll hope and pray for the best!
