It's hard to put into words the feelings I had watching Barack Obama being sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America.
Pride. Joy. Excitement. Hope.Fear.
All of those emotions were there as I witnessed one of the greatest days in American history. I thought of my children and what this means for their future. I thought of my parents and grandparents and the sacrifices they made for this day to happen. I thought of my husband who has felt the weight of being a black man in a white man's world.
He has a difficult job ahead of him-no doubt. But, for the first time in a long time-there's hope.
