change comes to washington

what a day!  20 january 2009 marks a pivotal point in history.  the inauguration of the 44th president of the united states.  president elect barack obama will be sworn into office, and will assume the office as the united states' commander in chief.  president obama.   millions of people have gathered in washington dc to add this day to their own memoirs, and millions around the world are gathering around tv's and computers to witness this transition of power.  

here is a picture from a friend of where he and another friend will be watching the inauguration today.   i know.  i'm jealous too.  

and here is a picture of people gathered in the mall.  it's amazing to be apart of such a generation.  a generation that has triumphed generalizations, and is united for change and hope.  

god bless america.  god bless the bush family and the obama family, and all the men and women who have made today what it is.
