I loved his inauguration speech. I think it made us all feel hopeful...and for the first time in a while (I'm speaking for myself here) proud to be an American. My son Social Animal (19) called me up because he didn't know who else to tell that listening to President Obama's speech while driving to work had moved him to tears. I totally got it. It is a dark time in our history, but today brought hope that we will get through this and we will all be better people for it.
