“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.” ~Anne Lamott

watching bits of the inauguration from my desk and then in the lunch room i couldn't help but have a few tears in my eyes. he is just a man, an imperfect guy who won't be able to fix the world with the snap of his fingers, but i feel so proud of what he stands for and the hope that he inspires in me (and i hope in everyone else too). it leaves me speechless that my kids will grow up in a world where a multi-racial president is the norm and know that they can achieve anything they dream. it's just, awesome. and you know, it's also a plus that finally the rest of the world won't treat us like raging morons.
