When I got home, I decided that the event was too big and too amazing to watch alone, so I went to my neighbors' house and sniffled along with them.
I had been looking for a good picture to express how I feel, and Salon.com provided it.
Farewell, President Bush. You have wreaked havoc on our country that will take us decades to fix. But today, I'm optimistic that with President Obama (how wonderful does that sound?) running things, we can begin to get back on track. For the first time in years, I feel hopeful.
Today is for celebration. Tomorrow the real work begins.
