Today....

http://rightdemocrat.blogspot.com/2008_05_01_archive.html

Sooo, did anyone watch?  What did you think?

I wish him well and we can all pray that President Obama steers this country in a direction that brings us all together! 

 

 


Re: Today....

I watched it and made my children watch it, just as we watched Bush's inaugural 4 years ago. We also watched Obama's speech, at which point I released the children and they spread to the 4 winds. I watched for a while longer, sad for the direction the country is going and hoping for better. Although I support almost nothing that President Obama is for, I support the office and the country. May God watch over him and his family, grant them safety and peace. And may God be with him in wisdom as well.

Re: Today....

We all watched with pride, especially since my niece was part of the choral group that opened the Inaugural Ceremonies. Her group had to wake up at 1:30 am this morning!

Re: Today....

My boss called me at 6:30 this morning and said if I wanted to stay home and watch, go ahead.  I did.  I'm also one who is hoping for change, for the better. 

 

 

Re: Today....

   No, and I will leave it at that.

Re: Today....

I watched off and on during the day . We do need to continue prayers for the president and our country. I may be negative but I believe our economy will get worse before it gets better.  I believe we will be tested with our faith and our belief in the goverment  in the days ahead.

 Smiley Flag This was one of my days off, so I got to watch it, for a change. Nice to see history in the making, no matter what your political views. I hope my 4 grandchildern had the opportunity to watch it in school.  ~Diann

Re: Today....

Diann,

Well said, I think regardless of your political views, today was history in the making. Years from now, no one will care about who was a Repub or a Dem, they'll just recall that they were part of an historic event...so I was just glad to be absorbing history...okay, stay tuned later tonight to some more Amish-related posts! - Kevin

Re: Today....

I was out to lunch with the pastor from my church, so I missed the whole thing.  My boys said they had lunch in the gym today so they could watch it (they usually eat in their classrooms).  My daughter watched it in Civics class, and then watched the parade in Band class.

Re: Today....

Some of the classrooms I was in had it on including the cafeteria and computer lab.  I agree with some that even though he's not who I wanted for president, I will support him because he is the leader of our nation.  I will pray every night that God gives him the wisdom to lead us safetly in this trouble times.

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift... that's why they call it the present."

I honestly didn't know what time the swearing in was... plus, I was in Quincy all day today! 

I hope the new President can do something to help us out of the current mess we are in.  Everyone is looking for the perfect answer and have put Obama on a pedestal...a very HIGH pedestal.  I hope he doesn't let us down.  I find it amusing and somewhat refreshing that the president is now our country's biggest celebrity!  He is the celebritys' celebrity, even!

Re: Today....

We didn't know what time either, last night I did a little research and discovered that protocal for Inaguration Day is written in the Constitution; and the date is January 20 and the new president is to be sworn in exactly at 12 noon.

Re: Today....

Yes, we watched.  I had tears in my eyes many times as I watched this historic day.  I can't imagine how they could survive the cold!

Re: Today....

I recorded it today to watch either tonight or later this week.  With Don's cataract surgery yesterday, I don't know if I will still be following my normal M-Th schedule & going to help Eddie at the gym or not - depends on how Don is feeling when I get home.  If I do stay home, I will probably have time this evening to watch it.  Then again - I might keep it until this weekend when Don's eye should be less cloudy & all as the lens settles in & then we can watch it together.

Re: Today....

Hadn't seen you on the diet buddies post yesterday or today and wonder how things went with his surgery.  Hope everything is ok at home.

Re: Today....

I fell asleep last night before 8 & then we had to do all the orders from the weekend, so haven't been on much today yet.

Will post for both days today.

Re: Today....

Yes, we all watched. The kids watched the election coverage to see the democratic process at work. So, having them watch the Inaguration was the logical conclusion to the Social Studies lesson. As an aside, no, I don't agree with most of the new President's political views. But, as an American citizen, I support my President.

Re: Today....

Last night I was asking my husband if he thought we should have the children watch; at first we had the guilt answer, like maybe since it is part of the process of the election. 

Being honest, we fall into that category of folk who aren't thrilled with this new President and maybe even frightened by some of his thoughts and ideas, but he is the leader of the country. We just aren't passionate about American politics; this election year just seemed to encourage us further in our relationships with Jesus, and following God's Word.   

So we decided this, the children didn't even think to know that it would be on TV since we don't watch TV, so instead we would at 9AM our time pray for our country and the new president.  So that is what we did.

Re: Today....

I watched on and off, while I was rendering lard! Although I am not fully pleased with the new President, I intend to give him a chance. I have posted a blog on my husband's site with my thoughts more fully outlined; but please do not misconstrue my being here! I joined this site soley because of my interest in the Amish. But I will say that EVERYONE deserves a chance; isn't that what America stands for? Agree to disagree, write your Representatives..make noise..It's your constitutional right! But, if you remain silent, do not complain. Silent voices run both ways. God Bless America!!
