First post of 2013 (and way overdue)

I feel it only fitting that the first long-overdue post should be about the moving inauguration that just took place.

The first thing that caught me hook, line, and sinker was the performance by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. All I could think of as the camera panned the multi-racial choir, was how great our country is — and can be. I’m not usually given to patriotic pride, but I could not help be deeply moved hearing these amazing voices sing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”.

And then there was President Obama’s speech. I’ll need to read it several times to fully digest all that he spoke to. Powerful, strong, hopeful, all-inclusive, and inspiring.

And as cynical as I was that Beyoncé was to sing, she got me too.

Here’s to another four years!
