Inauguration Day

I am so excited for what is to come in America (and the world). Today feels like a breath of fresh air, and I can't even look at a picture of President Obama without shedding a tear. I am proud to be a Chicagoan as well as an American in this moment. His speech was incredible, reaffirming what a great feeling it is to finally have someone in control who is as eloquent as he (not to mention who is as even tempered, mindful, caring, confidant, grounded, and loving towards his family). I particularly loved when he said:

On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear,
unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
