Although not my first pick as president, Barack Obama has captivated our nation and for several hours today, he also captured my attention.
It was fascinating to watch our country, and many around the world, celebrate this historic day.
I couldn't help but feel humbled and blessed to live in this country, and to be able to enjoy the freedoms and lifestyle that I have.
I wondered how President and Laura Bush must be feeling.
The weight of the office now shifted to one that the whole world seems to adore.
Although far from perfect, I believe he did his best and what he thought right.
Hopefully history will be kinder to him than the present.
And to President Obama, we will pray for your success, wisdom and strength to handle all that is now yours.
