"I'll admit I may have seen better days,
but I'm still not to be had for the price of a cocktail,
like a salted
Lady Gaga’s Golden dove of peace said it all
I shed a tear at Biden’s speech.......sanity.......sometimes there are days when you need to lend a hand and days when you have take a hand
John.....Amen! Best to you. Take care. From Across The Pond at the bottom of the mini-mountain in Maine. I am finally more relaxed, as well as very grateful. Whew!
Wales waves at you all happily xx
What a wonderful day
I’m so happy for you David x
Yes it is!
A genuinely decent President and Vice-President. Let the healing begin. xx
@happy hooker/ lol, you,re kidding right? jane
A glimmer of hope
I’m glad trump fucked off early
I can’t believe how happy I am to have watched today. The voice of reason sounds so beautiful to me. Oh and Lady Gaga was as always amazing!
She gave the personal ceremony a bit of chutzpah
I got up at 5 a.m. and caught sight of the helicopter leaving. My spirits rose as it rose into the air!! Hurray. I went back to bed for a happy snooze.
It's the best news there has been for quite a while...
Even though I'm working from home and won't be off until 4:30, I had a tiny half glass of champagne at noon when President Biden was sworn in! (Shh...!) I plan to drink a whole lot more tonight! Oh, Happy Day.
I hope you get wonderfully pissed ( drunk) tonight u deserve it x
Yes I found it all a bit emotional too John.
John, I've just watched it as well and echo everything you say. Keep safe xx
Xx there is foooding locally but I’m fine x
Stephani Germanotta (Lady GaGa) was so good. A true singer and artist. Not seen on the pool footage was where she was pointing: at the Capitol flag -- still there after the attack and suddenly bathed in sunlight. Garth Brooks made me cry with Amazing Grace. And President Biden's inaugural address made me think there may be hope for us after all.
Yes I found all of the performers intensity moving
Yes, Gaga has a voice. The entire ceremony was touching and amazing.
It was......simple and personal
I’ve been a bit teary eyed at certain points today ... Kamala holding up her right hand then double fist bumping with glee.... lady gaga singing and looking so beautiful ... Biden being sworn in at last ... xx
Perhaps trump has done something good ? His awful presidency has reinforced what needed to be returned to American politics
That's a good way to look at it John.
YEE HAW! we have REAL LEADERS AT LAST!
I pretty much wept through the entire last half of the Star Spangled Banner.
Such a difference from the last one
Gaga looks beautiful.
Didn’t she? And the massive brooch was perfect
YASS Gaga! 👍🏻 Enjoyed the new album, too. 😉
One of our relations text, Its a beautiful, hopeful day in America. Lady Gaga's singing was amazing.
She looked so proud
I thought Jennifer Lopez singing was also amazing.
What did she say in Spanish
I’ve just looked it up Lopez was actually uttering part of the Pledge of Allegiance: “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
A great day for America and her friends. Thank you Wales.
Waves my dragon flag in salute xxx
Finally, I feel hopeful and happy.
I am for you
lady gaga was awesome. the poet was outstanding. we have a chance now. the republicans are slowly backing away from trump because their financial baking is being pulled. even the my pillow guy is crying because his retailers have quit carrying his crap. oh happy day!
I’m glad trump wasn’t there
"We cannot change the past, but we can change our attitude toward it. Uproot guilt and plant forgiveness. Tear out arrogance and seed humility. Exchange love for hate-thereby, making the present comfortable and the future promising," Maya Angelou
It’s been an emotional day and such lovely references to African American prose including the remarkable Amanda Gorman
What a perfect quotation from Maya Angelou. I wished that she could have been there today. Thanks, Mistress Maddie!Hugs!
"For there is always light, if only we are brave enough to see it – if only we are brave enough to be it." Amanda GormanSuch a lovely ceremony today with so many uplifting moments. Thanks, John. for celebrating with us!
I wouldn’t have missed it for the world
Such a happy day.Bonnie in Minneapolis
I was so glad to see it.
It’s a worldwide joy not just a nations one
A new day and I will rejoice and be glad in it!
I could not watch television (homeschooling) so I missed it, but when I checked FB at noon, Connie schultz's comment 'Trump is no longer the president of the United States of America' brought tears to my eyes.
I loved the fact that Harris was the official trump Vice President for ten minutes x lol
Did not occur to me but that is funny.
It's a start.
And a good one
From beginning to end an outstanding day. Shed a few wee tears from time to time. May the healing begin, and not just nation wide but world wide too. Gaga and Jennifer were amazing. I'm always so impressed when someone can stand up and belt out a song under such pressure to get it right. And young and so very talented Amanda. Wow. X
"My whole soul is in it."
It was a perfect ceremony.
John, thanks for posting this. I have hope today that maybe, just maybe, things here will get a better.
Peace to all! I loved the hope, promise of truth and justice, and the call for unity with all working together in the days and years ahead. May our souls all be in it.Ta, John!Hugs!
Tears shed here too. He whose name I shall never speak again, is gone and relegated to the dustbin of history to face his mounting legal and financial troubles. Now we move forward and already, with 17 Executive Orders, President Biden has undone some of the biggest and most egregious things. Tell the world we're back and stronger than ever!
Relieved, tears and joy!!!
thank goodness that son of bitch is gone.
Amanda Gorman WAS amazing !!!
Yes I also thought Amanda Gorman was amazing and thought how sad it was that John Lewis was not there to see it, but at the same time I'm glad that he also did not have to witness the horror in the white house of the gun toting mob who had murder on their mind.
yes antifa are bad people, paid for by democrat party funder george soros jane
An amazing day, hopefully America will breath a sigh of relief and look to an equally amazing future.
Biden's speech, in my opinion, could not have been better. THAT's a president. THAT's a leader. There was so much greatness in yesterday's proceedings, but Amanda Gorman was the brightest star in the sky.
Our Escorts in Dwarka are amazingly hot and that they realize how to manage an individual with adoration and love. When you have invested fine energy with our Dwarka Escorts, you may not the slightest bit look for every other person. The five star components around us is the truth that we give extraordinary call girls in Dwarka.
I couldn't believe the send off trumpy gave himself-I wish The United States of America every happiness for the future x
Every time I read Amanda's powerful poem the tears come. Every single time. It should be required reading.XoxoBarbara
It was a wonderful day. I feel proud to be an American again.
Congratulations. You have a president owned by China. I'm sure Uyghurs are as pleased as you all. You can continue to label those that disagree with your political opinions horrible demeaning things and depend on politicians to make your decisions.. Did your parents teach you that or are you empowered by the internet. Would you call me names to my face? Enough, please, enough.
