Tomorrow is Inauguration Day. As a nation, we look forward to this day for many special reasons. For me, it is the day our new President, Barack Obama, takes office, our nation comes together in celebration, and my seven year old daughter is able to watch and remember this grand event. She has been talking about it for weeks now as her teacher and class have discussed the upcoming day. And with today's holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King almost over, I smile as I remember her interest and comments at the dinner table. She commented on the unfairness the African-Americans experienced and spoke of how Dr King struggled to make our nation a better place. She watched the news eagerly and listened to the news anchor list the schedule for tomorrows special day and she earnestly spoke of how proud President-elect Obama's daughters must be of their dad. And I just smiled....I am so proud of my daughter and I am so proud of my country. I can't wait for tomorrow!
