There are moments in history that are looked back upon in retrospect and considered to be cornerstones in the history of humanity. Other times the significance is tacitly obvious even as the moment transpires. Today I witnessed a most amazing event. I witnessed a re-infusion of hope, resolve and courage… of pulling together in unity… of a people that had somehow lost their footing along the path of their journey, and needed to be reminded of the journey’s purpose and led back onto the path. I have a renewed hope for the United States, and by corollary, the rest of the world as a whole. Welcome, Barack Hussein Obama. Godspeed!
