Happy Inauguration Day

Much has already been said and written about this momentous day, my favorites being Pete Seeger's performance of "This Land is Your Land" at the Lincoln Memorial at Sunday's Inaugural concert, and this v-blog posting HERE by Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine.

I, for one, am looking forward to four years of working towards positive change, rather than fighting for the ground already won. For expanding people's capacity in "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" rather than limiting it. For realizing that we are all Americans and that's what makes us mighty, not what brings us down.

We have many wounds to heal. Let's try not to create more in the process of that healing.

Now, go forth and celebrate! I will be in bed, fighting a nasty UTI - but I finally have some anti-biotics, so I'll just be helping them work their magic.

Hip hip hooray!
