I’ll be one of many people tuning into the inauguration of the new president but am saddened that it’s not always like this. I’m the type of guy who downloads historical speeches to play whenever I need some food for thought or even just some inspiration to do, whatever. That’s why it’s not surprising to people when I bring up the day of the speech as something to celebrate. Other people are hosting parties because the president will be a black guy, that’s great and all but it does mean people are going to watch this with less regard for it’s historical precedence and more like they’d watch a sideshow.There might even be people who will be waiting for Obama’s head to split open and reveal his reptilian true nature.
Regardless, I do hope people tune in with a sense of pride to be alive for the event. Eventually someone will ask you about it down the line and hopefully you’ll be prepared to answer.
