Proud to be an American

I think that this is the first inauguration that I have ever sat down to watch. Scary as that is to me, I feel proud that I am taking more of an interest in what goes on in this country. That I had a say in what transpired.

Aretha Franklin is singing...and I am crying. I wish I would have kept the kids home to watch this. Get them excited and interested at an early age so that they take a stand when they get older! To see us swear in our first African American President, but also see that we have taken a stand for something hopeful. Something, someone who will make this country the great place that we learn about and are proud of. It's an amazing thing to watch!
