“I want to see this again. I’m not going to get to see this again,” said our President today as the presidential party exited the inaugural celebration, and he stopped, turned back around and just looked fondly and proudly over the crowd, the scene, and the moment in his life that he was leaving. For the last time. He just stood and looked.
He really likes being President.
Several years ago, my astrological predictions were requested regarding a black presidential candidate named Barack; I predicted Hillary Clinton would triumph (which is one of the reasons I shy away from predictions, although, my actual statement was that she would be incredibly successful politically). I never thought we’d elect a black guy named Barack. I love being wrong (right, T?!), thanks to a non-competitive Piscean Ascendant. And, now, we’ve done it twice.
Recent reports suggest that only half of us in America are happy, and we pin this next to the president as though the happiness of millions can possibly rest on the shoulders of one man.
Did we expect this of our other presidents or are we raising the bar for racial reasons? Like my sister said, he could cure global warming and we still would not give him the credit.
Another great president, and Aquarian, Abraham Lincoln, said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Too excited to sleep
It concerns me that our president does not get enough sleep. In a recent interview, Michelle, our fabulous and legendary First Lady, said she goes to bed around 9 or 10, but the president often does not get to bed until after midnight.
According to another interview, she rises at 4:30 to exercise, and her mate joins her within the hour. This means he’s only sleeping about 5 hours a night. Being the health-conscious soul that she is, I’m curious what Michelle has to say about this. Now, it’s true that some people simply don’t require 7 or 8 hours a night, and this might be true of President Obama.
However, it’s more likely that this passionate patriot, genuine humanitarian and proud leader of every soul in this country says to himself, and perhaps, his mate, “I can sleep when I’m not the president.”
There were several poignant highlights in today’s inaugural events, including the fact that they occurred on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday celebration. Beyonce’s performance of the National Anthem was fabulous. The prayers, poems and evocative speeches were moving and inspiring.
But, nothing was as touching as seeing the president turn back around to see his inauguration one last time, and hearing him say with heart, “I want to see this again. I’m not going to get to see this again."
Here's to four more years and faith in America's future!
