Non-believers

Regarding the inaugural address of Barack Obama: On the whole, watching coverage of the Inauguration, all day and all night, was THE most significant and inspiring political and historical event of my lifetime. My only moment of hesitation in President Obama's speech was when he used the term "non-believers" in describing one of many possible religious affiliations.

On the day of the inauguration

Today, on the day of the inauguration, I watch and listen. I watch millions pour into DC to be part of a common history, an evolving history that once again shows hope and the ability to change.

It's a had, had, had world...

The first piece I saw was on a mixed race couple (a dark skinned man and a fair skinned woman) in England that had twin girls 7 years ago and one appears “white” and the other “black.” Crazy.
