hope, not fear

hopefully we all watched that inauguration together today, because it was fantastic. I loved Obama's speech. Of all the things that he said, there was one piece that stuck out for me.. and that was the part where he said that we (america) had to grow up. because we are in for a lot of hard work.

and if you didn't catch the speech, I hope its because you were working hard already.

on a side note: i actually enjoyed the benediction, particularly the ending which is already giving people fits all over the internet. I will paste a copy of that here now:
(now, i could be wrong, but I think the moral of this story is that we need a sense of humor)

========================================
Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around -- (laughter) -- when yellow will be mellow -- (laughter) -- when the red man can get ahead, man -- (laughter) -- and when white will embrace what is right.
========================================
Let all those who do justice and love mercy say amen
