Congratulations are in order for Barack Obama. Although I don't agree with most of what he stands for, I will say that I am willing to give him chance and I do hope for the best for our country. I was at the gym this morning, watching the inaugural ceremony, when I looked over and saw a friend who appeared to be moved to tears. Knowing that she is one of the few friends I have in the Bay Area who is not a member of my church who does have the same political values I have, I was caught off guard. I immediately went to her to see what was going on. It seems she is allergic to the gym and her nose always runs when she works out. I am just glad she was not crying out of grief!! So, with the 'audacity of hope', in Obama's words, I look toward the future, knowing that the past election didn't really have any acceptable options for a conservative gal like me.
