The Inauguration

While yesterday was Martin Luter King Day, I couldn't help but think this morning, on the eve of the inaugural, what a legacy this also is for Robert Kennedy, the Attorney General who started the civil rights movement. It brings extraordinary meaning to his death. Today, I am really awed at being an American, and how this country is a living, breathing organism, that morphs from the racially separated nation where I grew up, to the racially integrated country it is today, where a black man gets elected President. And all in my brief lifetime.

I already know that today will be one of the greatest days I will ever live through, one that I will remember until I die. Historic times, my friends.
