I've felt pretty calm through the week. It is a great time to be a teacher, a great time to be an American. I watched President Obama's oath and inaugural speech on the big screen at our school with hundreds of teenagers. The hope and applause was a lot to take.
But I was calm.
[I tend to cry like a baby at such things, but not that day.]
Then there was this. I was looking at just now.
And bawling. Like a baby. Tears and tears and tears.
This gorgeous family. These beautiful girls. Just the family for this time.
It just feels right.
