JANUARY 20 – LASTING IMPRESSION
From what I’ve seen and heard on this day I can’t escape the one final and lasting impression: we have a president who seems to be genuinely proud of his country, the United States of America.
And all it stands for.
All its history.
All its beauty.
All its geography, “from sea to shining sea.”.
All its ordinary industry and small family enterprises.
All its abundance.
All its normal, everyday people.
All its goodness and faith.
I saw all the new people coming into the government, and they seemed to be glad and proud that they are one of us, among us. I think they’ll do their best.
Makes me want to be a good citizen.
These new ones have their job, now, and I have mine.
