I'm overcome with gratitude for our freedoms and peace.

The students saw my tears today. I tried to explain how far we've come to reach this point. Obama was magnificent.

It was great, wasn't it? We were teary, too-- and loved every minute of it. How grateful we are to live in this nation, to be able to work for and celebrate and enjoy the growth and progress of ourselves and our neighbors! ---Rochelle

Emily, have you watched the "John Adams" miniseries? You can rent it at blockbuster. Seriously the best thing I've watched in years, maybe ever. I'm asking b/c it shows George Washington being sworn in and it was so moving; really made me stop and think about what it all means, and how hard it was to make it happen for the very first time. I thought of all that as I watched Obama being sworn in. Nervous about the political platform, but thrilled with the person behind it.
