Tomorrow is a big day. The inauguration of our new president. I can't wait to show J.T. all of the tradition... it will be the first he is old enough to understand.
So much is expected of Obama. In a way, I feel a little sorry for him. We are all elevating him to the status of the best and brightest our country has ever known before he has even been sworn in. He will be under immense pressure as he deals with the many problems our nation is facing.
He is intelligent, confident, and seems to possess good character. Those qualities are the ones I'm hanging my own hopes upon. I realize that no person is a magic elixir who can resolve problems instantly. We all should be prepared for a bumpy ride as the consequences of years of bad management will be impossible to fix quickly. I know we are in a place I never thought I'd see in my lifetime. When true equality is more than a dream, but has become a reality.
