Today the world is focused on witnessing the start of a new journey for the United States. The history-making inauguration of Barack Obama has the world mesmerized. This is another step along the way in fulfilling the dream of Dr. Martin Luthor King. President-elect Obama's inspiration and great oratorical skills has injected hope into people around the world.

It has been amazing to see how my kids have grasped the events in their own way. Adam would rather watch world news over Curious George and Alex shocks people when he shouts "Barack Obama!" whenever we see his photograph gracing the cover of a magazine at the bookstore.

Here's to your dream, Mr. President.
