Is anyone else spending the day sobbing? The gravity of Obama being sworn in to office of the President of the U.S. is overwhelming me. This feels like the most hopeful day in my lifetime, at least.
I've heard many Americans saying that it has taken us so long to get to this point. Interestingly, most European I have spoken to about Obama remark about how quickly this change has happened. How in 45 years the nation has gone from segregation to a black man becoming president. In the big picture, this has happened in the blink of an eye.
I feel so lucky to be around on this day.
