A wonderful day for this country

Today is a wonderful day for our country, we had a transfer of power from one administration to another that was peaceful and without incident.
It demonstrates that we are the greatest country in the world. There are many parts of the world where this transfer is contentious or occurs under the threat of a gun. Not here.

It was a wonderful day, a wonderful ceremony and a wonderful parade (even though it went quite long).

The one thing that upset me is the members of the audience booing former President George W. Bush when he was introduced at the inaugeration ceremony. Despite your political views or thoughts of the President Bush, he is still the President and deserves the respect of the office.

  1. Very true. Though, to play Devil’s Advocate, while the U.S. inauguration doesn’t occur under threat of a gun, it does occur under scope of a gun. I imagine there were dozens (more?) of snipers scattered throughout the city, keeping watch.
