I honestly have too much work to do right now to offer any sort of in-depth insight regarding the historical events of this day; but I will offer one thought. While the election of President Barack Obama and the repudiation of the policies of the previous administration is crucial to the task of re-making this nation in the image that the founding fathers intended; it is not President Obama who will be the deciding factor in whether or not that change happens.

The deciding factor is ourselves. It is incumbent on each and every one of us to effect the change we desire in this world. From the smallest acts of kindness, to partaking in the grand pageant of democracy. On this day, the future has been placed into our hands; and we will make the choice of how to shape it.

Choose wisely.
