The Inaug

There were a lot of parts of the inauguration that I liked. Like the Obama girls walking down the hallway, and also Michelle, and also Barry himself (although I wish he had smiled a bit.) And Barry messing up the oath a little (he was nervous! I found it adorable.) And Cheney looking like either dude from Dr. Strangelove, Jeffrey Lebowski, or some dude from It's a Wonderful Life (I've never seen it). Oh and George Sr's hat. And Barry's speech, especially the shout out to all the "non-believers" out there (I woo'ed at my desk.)

But hands down, here was the high point for me:

"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around. When yella will be mella, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

From Reverend Joseph Lowery's Inaugural Benediction, January 2009

Amen!
