I went to the Bloor Cinema today with Fahrin to watch this most important Inauguration with many, many others.  We were a fire hazard, we were so many.  It was amazing. 

Now I am watching CNN, and one of these guys is saying that Obama's address was a great speech, but there weren't any standout moments in it.  That guy is wrong.  There were so many. 

Just one*:

"Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose and necessity to courage."

Dream big.

* The rest.

  1. I heard that on the radio too! No stand-out moments? What speech were these people listening to??
    Glad you were there with me. White is alright!

  2. Not the same speech we were listening to, that’s for sure. If they’re after the “Ask not what your country can do for you” byte to play over and over how about, “Our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness” or “we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.” So many.
    If they want a sentence to unite a nation – don’t they know the WORLD is already united behind him?
    Me too, FK!

  3. “We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.” Definitely the stand-out-catch-phrase quote for the ages. I cried when he said those words, for the truth rang out loud and clear. God bless BHO.
