"On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.

We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."

Happy New Haiku

the year has begun
smell of change twitches my nose
I need a shower

the sun is rising
prospects of hope and progress
to fill a big hole

now is the right time
to start off on the right foot
and make a left turn

do you know the way?
turns won't be clearly defined
San Jose is there

chocolate and beer
healthy foods with a bad rap
my way to start year
