Hope Over Fear

This morning amid Nora's breakfast and playtime, I've watched the swearing in of President Barack Obama, and listened to his speech.

I'm thankful for this moment, and await with the rest of the world what's next!

Did you know the last line of our national anthem isn't a statement, but a question?

"Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

And the answer has yet to be seen. There are times when I think as individuals we feel free, and that in our acts of bravery that we contribute to the perception that we are brave.

It's not a question that needs to be answered right here, right now. I think it's a reminder to us that we always must ask ourselves the constant question of working towards freedom for all and the bravery to be just, not just brave in war or conflict.

On to a new day.

Nothing is impossible.
