Inauguration Day

Dear Dan,

You should have been here. You would have loved this one: the history of it, the pageantry, the camaraderie. I think you would have liked Lowery's benediction too. Say Amen!

I now you would have liked the music and Obama looks mighty fine in white tie, in a suit or in casual duds. Michelle is amazing and the kids are adorable.

You would have love the feeling of the day. There's a sense of hope but an understanding there is hard work to be done and it won't happen overnight.

It was a very good day.
