so it begins…


We’ve waited for this moment for a long time, and it’s become something of a sweet anticipation. I know I’ve been waiting for close to a year for this to happen waiting for the day, down to the hour, and now its here. History in the making. I know people who were there since the beginning, and people who are on the way. And now, the time has come. Change will happen. Today… the new IHOP is open!

Oh yeah, and today, Barack Obama will stop using the “President-Elect” and will be officially sworn in as “President of the United States of America.” Like many of my family members, specifically the older/elderly ones, I didn’t think I’d see this day. Actually, I didn’t think I’d see it so soon. And I think it’s like summer vacation, where it doesn’t really hit me until a few days later, “Hey, I’m on vacation!” So from election day to even later today, it’ll just hit me again, “Hey, a black dude named Obama is my president!” I’d like to note, I’m going to miss the Bushisms.

I wasn’t planning on being in DC whatsoever, regardless if I thought I could make it there or not. I’m a CNN junkie. Plus it’s winter and there’s a wave of disgustingly bitter coldness. So excuse me whilest I stay indoors. But it’s amazing to see the footage of the millions people all over the Capitol city. It gives me flashbacks of the footage I saw when MLK marched in Washington about 50 years ago for this very reason. It’s like history comes full circle. It’s been an amazing weekend for America. And it can’t be coincidence that yesterday was King Day.

So, I’m speaking for myself here, but it’s great to be alive and American (and Black) today, because I’m witnessing history and going to IHOP sometime later.

    The one regret I have today, is that there are no IHOPS I can go to, after watching Obama getting sworn in. 🙂

    I’m sorry to torture you… but it was delicious. Maybe you can start a petition? I’ll sign it!

    I don’t frequent IHOP but today is definitely a wonderful day in American history. I’m proud and excited and hopeful. Oh yes, and relieved 😉
