Tuesday, January 20, 2009


For more than a year I wore a black button that said just, "1/20/09." It was great. People would ask, "What does that mean?" and I'd get to say, "George Bush's last day in office." Answering this question made me especially happy when I could tell that the person who asked it was a fan of W." Passive-agressive, I know. But I'd think, hey, they asked! As it turned out, 1/20/09 became something so much more than just the end of W. Standing in the midst of two million people, listening to Barack Obama speak as President for the first time, it felt like the world was beginning all over again. May every spirit bless him!
