    I said this on another blog too, I hope this president is better, the best of all till now, and he is indeed a good human being.

  10. A great picture and very thought provoking at this special time in history....

    Thanks for the welcome back message you left me Sandy... )

  11. We will truly become one nation when the name calling and finger pointing fade into a distant memory... just as the days of being forced to sit on the back of the bus are no longer something that the American people tolerate...

    Let us all become the agents of "change". Let us all be standard bearers for truth and hope and courage. Let us each be what so many of our countrymen believe President Obama to be. The answer is in ALL of us. The future depends on ALL of us. No one man's shoulders are strong enough to bear a nation's future alone.

    When will I learn the lesson you have to teach me, Sandy? Less is more. Sometimes very few words speak so much more than paragraphs. You have that gift.

  12. I feel clean again!

  13. Great view of the flag and so very appropriate for today. God bless America and long may that flag wave over its people!

  14. A flag flying in blue sky is so uplifting. This expresses the great excitement of the day!!

  15. A great timely photo of our Stars and the Stripes, our American Flag, its beauty and its history from the its birth of the Republic to the Present Inaugurational Day of our 44th President.
    May we, as Americans, all take our responsibity to help do our part in making these changes ahead of all of us.

  16. Amen! I love to see tatters on flags as it means that it has been flying for some time. :)

  17. A beautiful picture. Here's to great things!

  18. Very fitting. And the excitement I see in people today and recently... it gives me hope. Because it's not just a new President, it seems to be a whole new attitude by the people in general.

    I hope it lasts.

  19. The Star Spangled Banner
    Composed by Francis Scott Key, "In Defense of Fort McHenry", September 20, 1814.
    Congress proclaimed it the U.S. National Anthem in 1931.
    Midi by Lesley Nelson

    Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
    What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
    O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
    O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
    Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
    In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
    'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
    That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
    A home and a country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
    Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation;
    Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
    Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
    And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    Strong words for a strong nation and it's people!

  20. God bless USA! congratulations and we are as happy here in the philippines!

  21. Long live the USA! God bless President Obama!

  22. One world, one love.

    Hugs, G
