How could I forget this?! I feel excited to be alive today. I feel happy that I am alive on a day when the world is going to change for the positive. I feel a sense of overall anticipation in the air... that could just be me. However, it seems palpable and real. I feel excited watching the early morning news and seeing the hundreds of thousands of people who are gathering in DC for the parade. As I wait for the inauguration to begin, I feel a sense of wholeness and readiness in the entire nation and, thus, the world. I feel blessed to be witness to this great event and welcome the changes I believe will be brought on by President Obama.
