Proud

Only one thing to say on this glorious, glorious day: what a joy it is to see the American flag flying, and for the first time in what feels like forever, not to want to cringe but rather to feel proud and to think "Yes we could, and yes we can!"

(Oh, and yes, that was me weeping throughout the entire inauguration.)

Welcome home!

I cried too -- and couldn't stop smiling all day.

Me, too. Count me as one of the criers. :-)

Nigel, thanks! It's good to be back.

Cam, yes, tears and smiles of true joy.

Lezlie, so glad to know I'm so not alone in this.
