Service, You Say…

It’s 10:00 and I just got home from a long day at work, so I’m going to keep my remarks on today’s inauguration short.

But there are two things I’ll share.

The first was that President Obama mentioned service more than once.  It’s been a theme of his entire campaign.

Apparently the universe-at-large has decided that my civic duty service is going to begin right now, on the very day of his inauguration: a jury duty summons was waiting for me in my mail when I got home.

Hard not to notice the timing on that one.

Anyway, besides that, there are far more bloggers out there who have said far more interesting things in far more interesting ways than my “I’ve been at work for 14 hours” brain can possibly come up with.

So I’ll leave you with this, the most popular picture of President Obama from PunditKitchen (the folks who also run the Fail Blog).

Feeling nervous about the state of things?  Just remember:

    It perfectly shows the ‘element of bad-ass-ness’ I believe Obama possesses.

    The service bug has bitten me as well and am one step closer to doing Big Brothers/Big Sisters. God help the poor kid that gets stuck with me!
