I'm getting sentimental in my old age

I watched today's before the inagural festivites, laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier followed by a concert at the Lincoln memorial.  After some good Nashville country music the choir sang the Battle Hymn of the Republic, and fireworks burst in the sky, I found tears in my eyes. 
   It's a good thing to have a big national celebration every four years, just to make all us citizens feel good about our country. And those 60 odd democratic Congressmen who are not coming to the inaugural are missing something good.
