My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Change is about to happen

This hand crafted picture I bought years ago. Today I feel is a great day to post it.
In honor and celebration of Changes ahead for our country I like it. Though not a true flag of our nation . It was hand made with ribbons & buttons and framed in a cute window frame.
Tomorrow Barrack Obama becomes our President. What a historical day.
Barack Obama's inauguration marks a profound manifestation of the Rev. Martin Luther King's dream which is marked with today being Martin Luther King Day.
Inauguration Facts:
The swearing-in traditionally takes place at noon on Inauguration Day at the United States Capitol in Washington D.C. with the Chief Justice of the United States administering the oath using the form mandated in Article II, Section 1of the United States Constitution. The 44th President will take the same oath as the many presidents before him who also had visions of making a difference.
The Oath
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
The newly elected or re-elected President traditionally adds "so help me God" to the constitutionally mandated statement.
I hope our new President can make the American dreams happen, He is only a man and he will need the help of all Americans. This is a change for not only America it’s a change for the world

I'm so happy and hopeful for this inauguration! And we all need to do our parts to work in our communities and to hold all of our elected officials to a very high standard.
