In my book, “Meet Me Under The Eiffel Tower” I talk about the importance of high Nitric Oxide levels as defined by popular woman’s author, Christiane Northrup, M.D. But one doesn’t need to be in Paris to experience high Nitric Oxide levels. Today my N.O. was soaring!
Today Americans poured into our Capital by the busload, train, plane and cars from every state in our Union. They rejoiced in witnessing history being made once again as our 44th President was inaugurated for the second time. Excitement was in the air as an ocean of citizens waved and cheered enough to stop the President on his way out to take one more look at what he was defending.
On such a day it is impossible to be negative. Impossible. The theme of the day was “Faith In America’s Future”. We Americans have faith that our country will prevail and that the issues that divide us will eventually be resolved. This peaceful process stirs in us a feeling of elation at just being Americans with gratitude for those who gave the last, full measure of devotion for our freedom. Hopefully our Congress will continue that feeling as it returns in session to resolve what America faces.
A moment that brought me to tears was the glorious rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic with the Tabernacle Choirs belting out those fabulous lyrics. Glory Hallelujah, indeed.
My favorite lines from the President’s speech:
“While freedom is a gift from God it must be secured by His people here on earth…When times change, so must we…America’s possibilities are endless”.
Less than a month ago I was in D.C. with my granddaughter visiting the beautiful White House and seeing the gorgeous Christmas trees while outside they hammered up the platforms for the Inauguration. We visited Arlington Cemetery and watched the Changing of the Guard. So today Washington was only a fresh memory away. It was such a thrill to experience that with her.
God Bless America from sea to shining sea.
