hope

i am actually going to watch an inauguration for the first time in memory tomorrow, and i am not alone. the mood of the country is hopeful- it is so nice to feel that way.

it was great to hear our next president talk about personal responsibility today.

i know that things won't all be wonderful- there's a lot of work ahead, and things will be pretty tough for a lot of people but it is refreshing to believe that there will be change for the better.

there's a song for every occasion, and here's what comes to mind:

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right It's all right

I was up before dawn watching TV also. The inauguration was awesome & I, like you & so many others am very hopeful for our future. What a PERFECT song for the occasion!

My song for the day is the old gospel song - OH HAPPY DAYS! uplifting the day, the man, the song.

lots of people with songs in their hearts today- your gospel song works well too. the man did not disappoint. the tone of civility is so welcome! and we even had sun here this afternoon-
