The audacity of hope

Thanks to a live link on, Fry and I were able to watch the Inauguration yesterday. Fry was incredible - he seemed to be focused on the screen and was calm and interested. He especially loved the music.

I couldn't help but get emotional when Barack Obama stepped forward to take the Oath of Office. As he finished, I pointed to the screen and said to my son with tears in my eyes, "That man is the President of the United States!"

That's when I realized that Fry had fallen asleep.

Oh well, at least he'll be able to say, someday, that he watched history being made, even if he doesn't remember it!
