3. I'm not surprised but still so emotional a day was yesterday, words just fail me.
The Bush Regime is not only gone, but the world for the most part, is embracing President Obama.

4. I watched yesterday here at work.
The ceremony, the speech, the parade. Today reading the news it's finally hitting me and I'm constantly fighting tears of absolute relief. Sanity has been restored to the halls of power in America.

I just can't tell you the depth of what I'm feeling right now.
