I know you’re all probably inaugurated out. Between Aretha singing with that big bow on her head and hearing the word “historic” a record-breaking number of times, I’m sure you’re ready to just get on with this season’s American Idol and The Office.
But, my son reminded me of one of our greatest civic duties yesterday.
John Henry watched a portion of President Barack Obama’s inauguration at school.
“I saw President George Bush and his wife.” He said. (I just think it’s the cutest thing ever that he says “his wife.” I know, I know. It’s a momma thing.)
“President Obama is going to the White House,” he explained.
“Yes, he is. What do you think about that?” I asked him.
“I’m going to pray for him,” he responded.
I think I am, too.
For me, that was my favorite moment yesterday.
“So let us mark this day with remembrance, of who we are and how far we have traveled.” – President Barack Obama
Do you have a favorite moment from yesterday’s big event?
