Like many Americans and much of the world the TV at the studio was tuned to the mornings events as Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America. No email was answered, no phone calls taken, it was not work as usual but time to revel in the feeling that this is indeed Day One, that the world has moved on and that we are a nation that is fully embued with hope and ready to get to the work of love. Wasn't it inspiring and wonderful to hear the word "love" used during the day to mean that we can move past those who have said in the past the word "can't" much more than can and that love is impossible to create as a nation. It is not to be said that the work ahead is easy, or that love will come easily, nor will it conquer all. Hard work lies ahead for us all but it begins with love.
And you know as a gathering of creative and intelligent people we know full well, it IS all about the LOVE------ let's celebrate it. Dance in it, revel in the day and party together.
Yes, we can! And what better a time to say count your blessings and pass one on.
