The presidential inauguration of Donald Trump was today. I hate to admit it but I didn’t listen to it. It’s not that I don’t like Trump, I just wasn’t interested enough to suspend my day and listen in.
In fact, I have only listened in to one inauguration address, the 2009 speech by Barack Obama.
It was historic. I was interested. I hadn’t voted for him, but I was hopeful and he was the new president.
I listened and afterwards I had hope. I liked his address. I told others that I did. The concern that I did have was my belief that my definition of the ideas he had shared would be greatly different that his.
I didn’t tune into his second inauguration speech.
