Bold Even in the Details

I was so happy with yesterday’s inauguration, in large ways and small. I do feel that we begin fresh again, perhaps as we have never done before.

Here in central North Carolina, we woke up to see new fresh deep snow, as we’ve not seen here in quite a long while. Everything looked pristine.

And then I saw (on TV) the hundreds of thousands of flags waving on the Mall, and Obama himself, and the line-up of former presidents and defeated contenders gathered to witness the “peaceful transfer of power” and I felt a confidence in us that I haven’t felt in a while.

I was also thrilled by one little detail. At the moment of word bumbling in the oath: Obama didn’t get flustered! He didn’t let a small problem lead to a bigger one. He was graceful and the awkward moment passed.

Hooray for a leader who can smoothly handle an awkward moment in front of a high percentage of the people in the planet — and who also thinks straight and means well. This is the best combo I can imagine.
