History



"nothing can stand in the way of the power of 
millions of voices calling for change..."
- Barack Obama


"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world."
- Abraham Lincoln

What a great day for us all. I'm glad you posted on it.

The inauguration is such an important starting point. Still, there is much work to be done.

I can't wait to get started.

I don't know what to say--it's just so wonderful that it's finally here, the day Obama is president!

HURRAY!!! Watched the whole thing at a friends house. So awesome! I'm watching the Obamas walk down the street right now and it brings tears to my eyes. So great.

If BO is thinking of filling Lincoln's shoes, then he has some big shoes to fill.

I think everyone in this country took a deep breath ... finally. We have felt like we were suffocating for quite a while now.
