We The People

          This year I also received Inaugural tickets. Unlike last time, I was able to go. One of my sisters went with me and we had a great time. I am unabashedly patriotic and love this country. I freely admit to getting choked up hearing the National Anthem and seeing the flag flying in the breeze. I've lived and traveld abroad. And as much as Ive enjoyed my travels I'm always glad to be home. I've not always agreed with decisions made by those in government, but I believe in "We the people." Standing on the mall with Americans of every stripe, my faith and belief in this country were reaffirmed. Frank L.Baum had it right, "there's no place like home."

It was a glorious day, wasn't it? Having lived right here on the outskirts of the city all my life, it still amazes me how beautiful a city our nation's capitol is. I've been working downtown and I get to drive past the monuments several times a week now and I confess that I still get a lump in my throat every time.
