Simply amazing: an inaugural address that referred to Seneca Falls, Selma and Stonewall. Justice Sotomayor swearing in the vice president. A gay inaugural poet. The beautiful first family. All these images and more paint the picture of America today, and where it's moving -- the path of progress.

Watching the inauguration brought to mind a comment from a man in Canada. He asked where I was from, and when I answered, he replied, "You're an American? Do you have any idea how lucky you are?" His words have always stuck with me. Think about it.
