1/20/09 The day we've been waiting for

Tomorrow's the day. We will finally wake up from the nightmare of George W. Bush's two terms to a new day. Unfortunately it will take many, many years, if not decades, for this country to recover from the damage this man has done to our country. In my opinion, he almost managed to do what Osama bin Laden couldn't: destroy this great nation.

I will be glued to the TV to watch the inauguration. I expect that the greatest highlight of the celebration will be President Obama's inaugural address. The second greatest highlight, at least for me, occurred yesterday at the inaugural concert, when Pete Seeger led the crowd in "This Land is Your Land." At age 89, Pete's voice has faltered a bit, but his spirit is as strong as ever.
