Peaceful transfer of power

This photo shows President Obama and Michelle Obama escorting former President Bush and Laura Bush to their helicopter following the inauguration.

I believe this is a day of hope for the United States and the world. And this morning I was particularly struck by something we may take for granted in this country – the peaceful transition from one leader to the next.

In the words of President Obama: “Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.”

And on a lighter note, I am delighted by the First Lady’s unique color choices – yellow dress, green gloves and teal shoes!
