Great article Paula! Thanks for sharing your experience. Enjoy and I agree it does feel like hope! Hope that with the exit of an administration geared to separate, divide, and encourage intolerance Barrack Obama can make us Americans first. And do what is needed to take us to a better place not so focused on hate.

I'm sure you're enjoying yourself Paula. I watched the inauguration streaming on CNN from my studio while I was working, and chatting on Facebook with my ex of 10 years who was watching simultaneously from Manilla in the Phillipines. It was strange and amazing.

Yes, hope is a good word for it. But even more, seeing the former president board that marine helicopter and be flown away... it was more that a feeling of total despair had been lifted.

Yesterday, so little was possible. Today, everything is possible.

I agree but hope you would capitalize the word 'Marine' when printing it..
There are MANY GLBT Marines out there.
