My sister Betsy said she watched the inaugural festivities Tuesday with tears in her eyes, not because of the man being inaugurated, but the man who cared enough to introduce her to such ceremony and national pride-our dad.
Through our dad's interest and care, I believe four of his five children have attended inaugurations of our country's leader and for that we are so thankful.
While it looked like just about every American was in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, we know what a privilege it was to be taken to our nation's capital to witness this always important event.
Thank you dad, for all you have done for us and instilled in us. We are truly lucky.
