Inauguration Day



"It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow."
                                                                                 Robert H. Goddard

Today is, above all else, a day of  hope.  Shining, golden, life-in-the-middle-of-winter hope.   This is our time.  This is our day.  This is our hope.  May we all work together to make it a reality.
