Today I watched the Inauguration of our new president. I am pretty sure this is the only time in my life I've ever watched the ceremony and I know it's the only time I've ever been so in awe of the tasks that are now on Obama's shoulders. I'm sure that by morning the full weight of the world will be felt. I know I couldn't do his job.
I am also inspired by the change he has stood for during his campaign and his first speech as president. He has so many people counting on him for so much.
I hope that during his term he will not forget how he touched people through the internet and in person. He really seemed to get on the same level as the people. He seemed to have a grasp on what we were all going through.
I know not everyone is pleased with having Obama as president. Now is the time to put that aside and help him to make the change necessary to bring our nation back from the brink. This year it will be more important than ever to communicate with our congressional representatives and senators. If you don't know who they are and how to contact them, take the time to find out because it is certain that you will have an opinion and want to your voice to be heard.
God Bless our 44th President. May he be well guided and wise in his role.
