History In The Making…..

Yesterday was an historical day for all of us in the United States of America. The swearing in of a new president….Barack Obama. Our first African American president brings the hope of a new day to our part of the world for many. The promise is of hope and change and I pray that it happens. I included our new president in my morning prayers today. He has a lot of hard work and thoughtful decisions ahead of him and I think he could use all of our prayers. What a wonderful sight to see, watching the inauguration on television last night. A scene of people of all colors and creeds coming together and uniting for a better country. You could not help but be overwhelmed by it all.

I felt bad for the Obama couple having 10 inaugural balls to attend after a very long day already! They did it quickly and with style. You could tell they were exhausted and our president had to get to work early this morning!

It makes me think that the old saying “all things are possible in the United States”….may just be true. We’ll see what the future will bring through our new president. I am not a Bush “hater” like a lot of people. I truly believe that he put policies in motion to keep us safe after 911 and for that I am grateful and I wish him the best. I am going to attempt to drop in a panoramic view of the State Capitol’s stage below. We’ll see if it works. Oh…before I forget, my wonderfully brilliant husband, the Computer Mechanic, designed a personal header at the top of my blog for me!! It is a field of blueberries!! Isn’t it great?? Another job well done by the computer mechanic! Aren’t I lucky to have my own computer mechanic??+:) Ha Ha…

... Yes, yesterday was the first sign of a country maturing and possibly becoming the realized dream of our wiser forefathers and the recognized voice of an awakening humamity that's been hateful and blind for so long ...
To my black sisters and brothers I say, "Come sit our my, and Debbie's table, where you have always been welcomed and never thought of as less than an equal!"
God Almighty, may racism rot in the innards of the racist!
Proud to be a true American, AliceMary ...

... Near forgot to mention - Great thoughts, Debbie; great 'Blueberry field' header!
I'm proud of you ... You've never been a prejudiced nor judgemental woman. You see skin color but as one who sees a tapestry of colors in a field of variant flowers, each from the same soil and from the seeds of the one and only Creator. Love, AliceMary
