"We do not believe … freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few."
I technically wasn't supposed to have a three-day weekend, but as I told you on Friday I took Monday off so I could be in D.C. for the inauguration. It was such a cool (and incredibly exhausting!) experience.
I cast one of the very first votes for Barack Obama to become President back in January 2008, when I caucused for him in Iowa. Since then, I donated time and money, volunteered at rallies, made phone calls, and articulated my support for him, passionately-and got to see it all come to fruition in person. Our president is one who does not judge by what we have, but by what we can be. I have a deep respect for him, his family and everything I witnessed today.
It's not something I'll likely ever go to again unless I have a special invite (mostly because it was so cold I was convinced I was getting frostbite on my feet), but I'm so glad I can check it off my bucket list. My apologies if getting a little political offended anyone, but I'm feeling sentimental and don't really hide that I'm opinionated. Politics is not a subject I wish to cover on this blog, but this experience was a big part of my recent life-and that, I do cover!
I hope everyone has a fantastic week-
