Inspiration Express

I promise to stop with the Obamarama…. soon. Not quite yet.

Today, what made me cry, watching the Obama Express whistlestop tour’s stop in Baltimore:

people clapping and yelling for the Pledge of Allegiance. The PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE.

I mean first of all, they knew and recited the words en masse, with feeling, unprompted.

Maybe (probably) I’m overly pollyanna about this but … to me it says, people are proud to be American again. And for some, it’s been a really really long time.

    That would be a very moving moment to be part of.

    Bring it on, Pollyana. I feel like it’s Christmas eve, like I want to stay up all night and watch every minute of gridlock and watch the Mall fill with people and just drink it all in!
