Inauguration Day

Today is a momentous event, the United States of America is swearing in its first Black president. I'm not going to get all political, pro or con, nor am I going to drone on about history changing and the world suddenly becoming a better place. I was going to try and dissect Obama's choice of preachers to give invocations and lead prayer services. I was going to try and read too much into his choice of Rick Warren. While I think he's more marketable than inspiring, I don't feel as negatively as some towards him. I was even thinking of debating if the oath of office, on a Bible, closing with 'so help me God' violates the separation of church and state.

But I won't. I'll leave that to the talking heads linked above. Instead I encourage you to just sit back and enjoy the moment. I will be.
