Oh, there been times that I thought
I couldn't last for long,
but now I think I'm able
to carry on.
 
It's been a long,
a long time coming
but I know a change gonna come.
Oh, yes it will.
 
                --- Sam Cooke, A Change is Gonna Come

I'm full of hope today. Hope and celebration. Because a change . . . is gonna come.

Finally! After four long painful, horrific, and deadly years, Inauguration Day has arrived, and I will be doing a happy (make that ecstatic!) dance at noon.

The sense of relief is overwhelming. As I write this, we have about two hours to go to decency in the White House again. I hope never to hear the name "Trump" again unless it's followed by "was sentenced to prison." Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris!

The sun came out today.

Best wishes to President Biden and Vice President Harris.

What a day! I was so excited to get up this morning, and now I am feeling such a huge relief. We survived the last four years, and while there is still a lot of work to be done, I am feeling so much more hope and optimism. And of course we've seen a historic moment, and I'll fully admit that I ugly cried watching Kamala Harris take the oath.

Oh Happy Day!!!!

Kat

Oh Happy Day indeed!!

It was so wonderful to watch! (Even at 7:-00 via youtube!) xoxo
