America The Beautiful

Just wanted to post about how proud I am of my country at the moment and how great it was to be a citizen of the United States today. I feel as though I've been holding my breath since the election to see if it was really real. Well, today I got my answer. And with all the hard times and financial mess that seems to surround us, isn't it wonderful to have a day where you can reaffirm your love of country and your hope for the future? I know it will be hard and that it might take a while to turn things around, but today, for the first time in a long time, I feel as though it's actually possible.
How was your experience of the inauguration of the United States 44th President?
