Inauguration Day 2013 fell on Martin Luther King's birthday and we watched the swearing in of our African American President for a second term. As the pundits who admire him put it, "...President Obama has received validation. His first election was not a fluke." Add to this his stirring speech, rallying the nation to pull together and Liberals to push for their inclusive agendas, it made for a thrilling day.
The President's happiness was palpable. Mine too. I feel so good about this second term. I really believe he will make lemonade out of the lemons he's been juggling the past four years.

Since this blog is titled "Women of a Certain Age", it's only fitting we congratulate the beautiful stylish First Lady, Michelle Obama, along with her husband. She sure rocked the Inaugural Ball!
