The Day

What a day that must have been and what wouldn't I give to have been there - wait - what would I give to have been there, in New York City, on the 30th of April, 1789, when General George Washington took his oath of office and became the first President of a nation he and countless others had brought into being. Man oh man oh man, just think about what he and the everyone in the crowd there that day must have been thinking. Think what all they'd been through and how that tall Virginian embodied it all. Gives me the shivers.
No time for reflecting & dillydallying. Off I go to Jefferson City to meet with a whole bunch of Daughters of the American Revolution. I'll bet they'd like to buy a ticket for a time machine.
