Liberty, equality, and the pursuit of happiness. ... completed
Sunshine, cold blue skies, good vibes and goosebumps, Obama's Inauguration leaves no room for the cynics, the sceptics and the blasé or the indifferent.
A thought occurred to me as I was watching the ceremonies, so redolent in symbolism, that such a day and such a promise and such hopes, and such summoned and offered sacrifices are probably as close to a replication of the first ever inauguration of a US president as can be imagined.
Where the promise of Liberty, equality, and justice for all was only partially promised, and enacted, now it is wholly, and irreversibly completed, sealed, and delivered.
It is Renaissance time for America. Congratulations.
