We are one

There's so much going on in our country this weekend and the next few days that blogging about cats and knitting seem a bit trivial.

HBO showed the celebration at the Lincoln Memorial today for everyone with cable for free. It's great to hear the music of our country with a feeling of hope. I know we aren't going to have things get better overnight. It will take all of us working together and be willing to serve instead of being served.

But - we have a new beginning, a chance to pull together and work as a whole. I plan to spend Monday celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day thinking about how far our country has come in the past 46 years since he gave his "I have a dream" speech. Tuesday I'll celebrate the beginning of a new presidential term and wish him well. It really is a new day and if we pull together we can make a change.
