Hope, Progress, Change.

What a day for our nation. Everyone holds their breath today as the "baton" is handed to Barack Obama. We hold our breath in hope that he can accomplish what he has promised. We long for progress and a change from the past 8 years. Either way it goes, I'm glad I'm not the one in his shoes this morning. I can only imagine the butterflies in his stomach. That overtaking, nauseating feeling that won't go away. A whole nation watching you, judging you, and leaning on you for that change. He has one of the most difficult jobs in the world after today. He has to lead the nation in an effort to get us out of this economic crisis. So not only today do we need to listen and critique his words, we need to whisper a prayer. He is now the working hands of our country and for that to fall on anyone's shoulder deserves a million prayers.
