Yesterday I did indeed get to watch the inauguration on television at DePaul. I watched about two hours of coverage with a crowd of DePaul students and faculty, including some vocal black women who were hilarious.
Yes, I shed some tears. Yes, we clapped and cheered. I remembered how I felt on election night when I saw this:
Sigh. Every time I think of it, my heart jumps.
I continue to be proud of this man, and I will fight for him these next eight years to renew America into a place where civil rights are a reality, and intelligence is valued again.
Hail to the chief!
