Where Were You Today

when Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of our country? No matter your political beliefs, I hope that everyone can agree that it was an amazing day, filled with excitement and hope.

Where was I? In the car, driving across the no-man's-land that is known as eastern Colorado. My Bear was in the backseat reading his books about monkeys drumming. My radio refused to pick up any station other than the one playing Bill O'Reilly. It wasn't the most ideal outlet on which to hear history, but I heard it. And it was amazing. I will remember this moment forever. And I will tell my children about the day when the country regained hope.

Happy Tuesday! (Thanks Mike Bockoven for the fantastic illustration below!)
