As salaam alaykum, Najea
Yesterday was awesome! It made all the demonstrations,protests, and rebellion of the 60's & 70's worthwhile. I was glued to the tube from early in the morning 'til well after the inauguration ceremony. Missed most of the night activity though. I have one concern though~we have to be careful that the media doesn't set the Obamas up as the exceptional AA family. There are thousands of AA families in their tax bracket who share their values regarding family, education, culture, etc. [Just another observation from an earlier generation]
BTW-I live the hijabi couture!

Hijabee, I am dying to see your photos from the inauguration. I was glued to the TV with my family all day. I was looking out for hijabis. But, it was so cold, most people looked like hijabis, all wrapped up. Please post your pix, I'm so happy you went.
Sis. Muhaiminah,
Thanks for commenting - I love you so much. It is always warming to my heart to come in contact with you. Of course, I can't imagine what it must be like to have lived through the Civil RIghts movement and to see a Black man become President. All I know is that I often thought that my parents had failed us. They protested and got high, they marched and walked out on their kids, they said NO to segregation and marraige ... my list went on. But, last night, I held my husband a little tighter and with a new sense of pride and love. Here we were, the children of broken homes - fathers and mothers who'd split-up when we were so young - mixed race people who had witnessed too much hatred and disharmony; here we were - holding a family together - with a new President who had gone through all of what we had lived, triumphant. For all the fathers of the Civil Rights movement who left their children behind, and sauntered off to bars - I felt a new sense of hope. I felt that our parents hadn't really failed us, that they had made us even more powerful than even they were. Regardless of the wealth and the education, I hope that standing by your family, come what may, becomes the standard once again in all American homes. This is what I most admire about Obama, that he has created for his children (and all of our children) what he never had.
Missing America,

Sis. Hijabee,
I'm stopping by your blog next! I'm so excited to see your pictures.
Whop-whop!
Sis. Ummabdurrahman,
Thanks for dropping by and giving a compliment to my blog, especially since you're such an experienced blogger. Barak Allah ufeeki uhkti! I can mail you anything you like - and with CTM - you'll get it the next day for 50 dirhams! Better yet, you have to come to Marrakech. You are so close, you really should see it. I would love to show you and Abdurrahman around.
Tu Hermana,
Najea
