It's Today

Do you feel it? The pressing weight of the historical significance of this day?
It's visible in the air.
Last night C was trying to force a civics lesson on H.
C: Do you know who is going to be President tomorrow?
H: Papa?
C: No!
H: Nana?
C: No!
H: Big Jim?
C: No! It's not anyone you know. We just know his name.
H: You?
C: No! You have to be 35 years old.
H: Silas?
C: No! It's Barack Obama. Can you say Barack Obama?

Barack Obama.
