I watched the second inauguration of Barak Obama with my mom today. It was also a day to remember Cuailgne, who passed away on this day 4 years ago and went to the Rainbow Bridge. We miss her every day and she is still the light and the love of my mom's life. But today my mom was very proud to be an American and to listen to the President's historic and progressive speech. She was very encouraged by the inclusive words the President used. She got a little teary several times and I had to lick her tears away,(and she gave me a snack). Her favorite part though, was when, as he was leaving the podium, he paused and turned back to look at the crowd of nearly 1 million people who had come to the National Mall to see him sworn in. He wasn't on mic, but mom could read his lips says, "I want to have one more look. I'll never see this again." And indeed, later the news people caught it again, and they ran the video and you could see him saying that. My mom is hoping that Congress will get behind their President and HELP him put through the changes he wants to put into effect. It's what the American people want. And if they wont help, well, she hopes that the American people will vote those Congressmen out.
