A New Day


It's amazing isn't it that one man can create such an outpouring of emotions: hope, joy, tears, belief in the future, when many had stopped believing. I am humbled to have been a witness to history in the making. Had I the means to be there, I would have been - the feelings generated by the unprecedented crowds were palpable. Thank God for technology at least giving us the opportunity to witness it.

I agree mama, it was great we were all able to watch it. Amazing speech too, even if the poem that. followed. was horribly. dry. so dry.

Ha ha...yes, that poem! No matter how you look at it, it was not good :P Disappointing for everyone, I'm sure, especially after such an inspiring speech.

Yes twas a great day indeed. I hope this momentum of hope remains. I heard Aretha Franklin's singing didn't quite hold up?

Actually, I thought the singing was ok...remember, it was icy cold, not the best for a voice. It was that poem that was rather dodgy...
