and I'm still feeling euphoric that I was a part of an historical moment. I found myself unable to complete my tasks at work and decided I needed fresh air and to escape the eerie silience of the office. So I headed outside and just stared at the beautiful foliage in Battery Park. As others stood around in groups chatting I found that every time I heard President Ba.rack O.bama my heart would go into a marathon mode and I would inch closer, eagerly listening as they praised and honored all those that came out to make a difference and those that paved the way. How their elders had seen and experienced heartache, struggled, setbacks, hope and now seeing a dream realized. That finally the young had grasped responsibility and came out in full force to make change and feeling inspired and truly hopeful and saying change has come.
I inch away strolling back to my job in thought on how so many showed their concern for change and for the umpteenth time this week messing up my make-up to wipe away tears.
