I am so blessed to have witnessed this great day, even while at home in my living room. It's a day that heralds a new beginning for all the world. Even in the subtle ways this president has conducted himself over the past year, and especially in the past two months, I have confidence the people of the world will perceive the integrity and high ideals put forth by Barack Obama's person, words and actions, and rise to meet the moment with changes in consciousness of like kind. This is my prayer.

This is a time to believe in our highest ideals and act accordingly.

We are One in Spirit. All of us. Everyone.
