Change happens. Today’s historic events were breathtaking and, if you weren’t paying attention, completely startling. However, as with most change, the inauguration of Barack Obama was the culmination of lots of work and lots of incremental change over a long time. Granted, it took an extraordinary man with a formidable team who ran a disciplined campaign. But more than that, it took a nation ready to embrace change.
So here we are — hopeful, but aware of the awesome challenges facing this country and the world. The President’s speech warned of tough days ahead. However, he also promised some new solutions. It is within our grasp, provided we remain open to Change.
