I've been watching a bit of the inaguration coverage. It's incredible to be watching such a historical day. I am excited for the Obama's. I'm celebratory for our nation and yet, I also feel a burden to pray feverently for our country.
I know that president Bush's popularity declined rapidly towards the end of his presidency, but I believe that he is a good hearted man who did a good job, given the circumstances, leading our country. (If you feel the urge to argue with me on this point, please don't)
I have always loved Laura Bush and count her among the few famous people that I would really love to meet and have a conversation with. I think she is very classy and sincere.
I wish both George and Laura Bush the best and thank them for their service. I pray that Obama is treated with more respect than Bush has been over the last 8 years.
I was just listening to Emma and her friend have a conversation about the new president. This is how it went:
Emma: There's the new president on T.V.
Her friend: I don't really like the new president.
Emma: Why? I voted for him. (They had a mock election at school)
Her friend: I just don't.
Emma: He's the first black skinned president. But I would not have voted for a woman president because I want to be the first woman president.
She's a smart one, that girl is.
Reminds me of another story about my dad. He ran for class president in either Junior High or High school. I can't remember. His last name is Sapp. So he made signs to hang in the bathroom stalls that said, "Don't Crap, Vote for Sapp". Yes he did. He didn't win. I would've voted for you dad....just for the awesome signs. LOL. We still love you dad. :)
Happy Inaguration day everybody!
