History made in my lifetime...priceless

When I woke up this morning I honestly didn't think I would really pay attention to the Inauguration today, but it was hard not to. Those of you who know me, know I am NOT a political person at all. I rarely watch the news and I just don't get too invested in all this stuff. But this was the first election I ever voted in..I will save you the math and yes I could have voted 4 years ago but I was a lazy college student who just didn't care. Nonetheless, I voted this year and that is what is relevant. I definitely felt that this was a young person's election, not because of the ages of the people on the ballot but because of the way young people responded. I work on a college campus, I got to see all throughout the fall semester students come together to promote their chosen candiate and on election day I saw the same students, some elated, some disappointed. But they cared..and that is more than I can say about myself back then.

So regardless of who you voted for... today is a great day for everyone. Change is good. Our country will bounce back, we just have to have faith.

So President Obama you have your work cut out for you...Good Luck!
