Today is an exciting day. The photo above I snapped a few days ago, when the Capitol was not teeming with the activity that surges around it and on it today.
The guns are still smoking, having just welcomed our forty-fourth President. I could hear them by opening my window, and it was a wonderfully, thrillingly surreal moment.
No matter what your political penchant, hailing a new chief is an exciting event, and further proof that our country is a country of the people, and of change.
May we look upon this day with happiness be able to recall it when we hear our wonderful, strong country criticized or slandered.
May there be forgiveness in our heart, and may today's crisp air and blue skies prove a winsome herald to our new Commander in Chief.
