Hope, Change

Just in time for the inauguration, my "Blossom Peacock" amaryllis began to bloom. The loveliness that was packed into a green bud is now visible, just as the promise of a new path for America is being revealed.

The inauguration was a stunning event. Hope and change are in the air and in our hearts. The presidency is real. Here in Plainfield, where Barack Obama received an overwhelming endorsement at the polls, we can take a cue from The Rev. Joseph Lowery's iteration of street philosophy and add, "If you're Barack, we got your back."
