Well in 9 days the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Rockettes will be lighting up the stage at the inauguration of the next president of the United States. Last night President Obama gave a heartfelt and moving speech which outlined some of the challenges we face as a nation. He did it without doing any impressions. He did it without calling someone a schoolyard name. He did it without bluster. He did challenge all citizens, including mr trump, to move us forward. Although I know there will be some here who will disagree, as it is their wont to do so, but I thought President Obama spoke eloquently and substantively and with a justifiable pride in the work that has been done over the last 8 years. He was presidential in demeanor, tone and presence. I have not agreed with him on every issue, but I believe he represented us proudly and well. I hope in 4 years, when mr trump makes his final speech as president, that I am able to say the same of him.
