O! What a Day This Is!

This is a historic day. Barack Hussein Obama, the first African-American President of the United States of America, was sworn into office today. He has inspired the American people with his message of hope. He brings with him youthful energy and personal dignity, and also an administration of competent experts in their fields. He has vowed to return hope to the nation, and restore our international reputation, and bring America back to its rightful place as a member in good standing in the worldwide community of nations. He has challenged us to join with him in bringing the nation back to prosperity. This is a great day indeed!

There's much celebration going on in America on this day. The following are my contributions to the festivities.

Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man


Woodie Guthrie's This Land is Your Land


And of course, Beethoven's Ode to Joy
