This morning we stayed in and watched Obama Inauguration. There is a lot of talk of what a historic moment it is, so I thought we should tune in. Will it be one f those things where we say " I remember where I was when " I even made Lucas watch it. (Although we played a lot of games while watching it.) But when he took the oath I got tears in my eyes. When he talked about how 60 years ago his father couldnt have dinner in certain restaurants. I think a big part of it was all the people there. I'm so moved by how people are so enthusiastic about him and optimistic about things with him as the president. I thought his speech was great and that he is going to be an excellent leader. But I do worry that the expectations are high for him and that in governement things are hard to change.
I wonder how much it will effect us here in Canada. But I also hope that Canadians would have a leader that we could be this excited about. Are we too nice and to even keeled to get this excited about politics? I do hope the feeling of optimisim and being responsible for the change we want to happen radiates through the whole world....
