What makes you cry?
For me it’s some of the usual suspects: onions, weddings, funerals, my son’s music, my daughter’s dancing.
As of yesterday, it’s also Presidential inaugurations. Congratulations, Mr. President. We are with you.

Me too, Susan. My husband and I watched the inauguration, and was moved and inspired by his speech. It was wonderful, and we never been more proud of being an American citizen.
me too! I feel like a huge blanket of shame has been released. Congratulations and Godspeed President Obama!
Susan, even in a small country like Holland we’ve followed the elections and looked, accompanied by our children, at the inauguration.
I hope Obama will succeed where Bush failed but it’s a heavy burden on the shoulders of one man.
I am so proud to have lived in this moment of American history. I agree, an era of shame is passed. This is definitely an event worthy of joyful tears.
I don’t cry often. Yesterday I was all lumpy-throated and misty-eyed.
I cry when I realize how blessed I am.
Watching President Obama take his oath of office I was reminded of one thought: fresh air.
Pure. Simple. Free.
“Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.”

I had tears streaming down my face while I watched President Obama take the oath. Like Margie, it was like a heavy weight was lifted from my back and the air was crisp and clean again.
I cried for a full week when he was elected, and since the inauguration I’ve shed a good deal of tears.
tears of joy and hope.
Agreed! Lots of tears on inauguration day. Lots of prayers for Barack Obama and his beautiful family.
And so say I; just hope the knuckle heads in congress and the usual detractors realize we are knee deep in the s*#t and need to stop bickering over nonsense, as we are tittering on the abyss, depression etc…
Yep, I had to go to class with tear-stained cheeks and a dopey grin on my face. I swear everyone was glowing that day, like just for one day, the petty little things didn’t matter.
Until I heard the news about our fine mayor in Portland. But the day was awesome until then. 🙂
Yes, January 20 was a good day in America.
Only time will tell whether it was a good day for America.
For the sake of our country, I hope so.
