With all of the uncertainty in my life right now (more on that in a later post) I am sure of one thing:
Today has been a huge day in the history of my country. I am hopeful for our future and hopeful that change is on the way. I think hope is what we all need right now, more than anything. With hope, people can see the difference their actions make. People see how they can help others. People see how their lives can be made better.
My only regret for the day, that I didn't shed a tear until Beyonce sang "At Last." I mean really... Beyonce? It was a beautiful moment, and I hope in four years we can all look back on this day and say it was as wonderful as we hoped it would be in that moment.
I also hope that my public speaking students are watching Obama's speeches. We could all learn a thing or two.
