Mimi and I watching the new president.
What a day -- wow. I didn't get to watch any of the inaugural coverage but saw some reruns. I've been especially moved by the comments of those who have been involved in the civil rights movement since the days of Martin Luther King Jr and have lived to see the day of a president with African American heritage. (I'm thinking specifically of the black senator from Georgia, but I can't remember his name.)
-- I'm thankful for the optimistic mood that has decended on much of our country.
