Words can not express how proud I am to be an American at this moment, or how much I admire our country's first couple.
What I do want to share are these words that Mrs. Obama inscribed on the leather journal she gave to Mrs. Bush on the steps of the Capital:
"There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning."
