I need to remember that for a remarkably resilient group in our society, this represents a hallmark event bestowing affirmation of their value and potential in our society.
Bittersweet really, because in this country, with our ideals, constitution, and professed religious values, that situation should not exist.
For me, well, I have waited since 1968, 40 years, for this inauguration! For a president who brings intelligence, independent thinking, social conscience, and integrity to our political leadership.
This president embodies the ideals, values, and world view that we have worked to instill in our youth.
He is the right one to lead all of us into what now carries a more certain future for our nation.
Thank God at last!
