New Era -- January 20, 2009

God bless America. Guide our new President in wisdom.


When I got off the bus, I noticed that the sidewalk on Mission across from Saint Patrick's was blocked off and that there were two large television screens. There was already a crowd of people waiting for the inauguration. I went back at lunch time and there was still a good crowd of people waiting to see the parade.
"On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.
We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."
