the Beauty and Power of Language

Writers praise Barack Obama’s inaugural address – Los Angeles Times.

There are so many things I could say about today. A singular, joyful, complex, evocative day.

I was so moved by our President’s speech.  It resonated with me deeply, both emotionally and intellectually.  And, even as I was listening, I enjoyed it tremendously simply as a piece of writing.

Then I found this great article in the LA Times, where a variety of writers talk about his speech: they use the power of language so beautifully to talk about the power of language.

I can only hope the strength and clarity of his words is matched by the strength and clarity of the transformation that he will catalyze, and that all of us will bring to fruition.
