no matter what you believe about him, it's still history being made.

So, in about 5 minutes they will begin the inauguration of Barack Obama. I know so many people feel so strongly about him, one way or another. And while I'm sure all the arguments are valid, you have to admit that what is being done today is historic. I'm going to watch the festivities for that fact alone. I really don't care what color our leader is. I'm just happy to be alive during a time when that seems to no longer be the deterring issue it once was.

Some have said that he doesn't deserve all the hoop-lah because he hasn't even done anything yet. Some say no president should be treated like a popstar. Some say he's going to single-handedly bring the ruination of the America we've always known. And some say he's going to change everything and bring to life the best America there will ever be.

Maybe. But when I'm old and looking back thru the scrapbooks of my life, I want to be able to remember that I was alive when they swore in the first African American President. One way or another this event will change our lives and the lives of my kids. I pray that God will use this for good!

Well said Amy. I'm definitely not an Obama fan. But I will admit it IS a very important day in history.

Pretty cool, really. :)
