I had the television on for most of the day watching the inauguration. Just like I have for so many previous transfers of the power for our nation’s highest office.
I did it because I am an American and whether I agree or disagree with the politics or the person I respect the office of the President of the United States.
I hope I can always appreciate the fact that I live in a country where, not only do I have the right to vote, but even when the political climate is divided and contentious the key players put their big girl and boy pants on and behave in a gracious manner.
That was evident in both Michelle Obama and Melania Trump this morning. There was bound to be tension yet they behaved beautifully. Graceful and poised each woman was a credit to our country.
Well-done ladies. Well done.
