I write. I read. I watch things. I knit. I tell you all about it.

yes, we can.
i can't believe this day. i don't know if i'll ever fully appreciate what i witnessed. at the same time, i don't think i'll ever forget every minute of this historic event. though it might be a silly story to tell my someday children about how i drank a magners, scarfed a BLT, and fought off tears as i watched president(!) obama being sworn in at "table 4 ladies," but i will certainly tell them.
there's nothing i can say that hasn't been said already. there are no new thoughts i can have regarding these events. all i can say is that i feel blessed and exhilarated that i am an american. it's such a change to feel like that. i love it.
