A historic moment is passing me by...well, sort of. In this age of technology I have the opportunity to record Barack Obama's inauguration as President of the United States and view it hours after it happens. But I have to say that there is something inside of me that wishes I were back home to be with people who understand what this means to me. Our first African American President, even at such a young age, it brings tears to my eyes. And for the first time in my electing history, I voted for my registered party because I believe that this will bring about something new. Better? Equal? Brilliant? Worse(not so much)? No, yes, all of the above: something new.

And I will happily tell my children that I was part of history.
