Watching the parade in Benson

My 19 year-old daughter and I watched Barak Obama take the oath of office today. We were in a doctor's waiting room.It doesn't take a particular political view to know that President Obama is part of a bigger story. A story that began 43 presidents ago. A story whose ending has yet to be revealed. A doctor's office in Benson Arizona seemed so tiny in comparison. Sick children seemed miniscule in light of all that is happening in Washington D.C. Still, I know that our story is part of something bigger. Our family's next chapter has begun. I don't know the ending. All I know is that I'm not writing it. Because I sure wouldn't have written it this way. But there's more meaning in this one. That's all I need to know.
