What a day it was today. To be able to watch the inauguration with my wife Nickie and my infant daughter Natalie was an amazing experience. I really felt the poignancy of the ceremony and of President Obama's words. He truly does instill hope at a time where hope is sorely needed. I told Nickie that Obama is seemingly the kind of leader men would gladly follow into battle.
I really have hope for the future of our county and for it's peoples. I feel proud to be an American for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, President Obama.
