Day after opening Clinton Library

I haven't been able to sleep all night long. What a day yesterday. Such a wonderful day. Except for the rain. I would like to thank everybody, who took the time and braved the rain to attend the dedication of the Clinton library and park. It means a lot to me. The support of my family meant a lot to me too.

It was good to see the presidents and first ladies. It was good to see my old friends from Hollywood. I hope my former colleagues from my days in Washington had a good time. And I hope all the people from Little Rock and Arkansas had a good time. This library is not just a testament to me, but also to our beautiful state.

Normally it rains on a day a president dies, so I hope the rains were not a sign as the old Gospel song says for the sweet chariot to swing low and take me home. I kinda wanna hang around for a few more years. hahaha.

The opening of the center truly is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I hope to be able to follow in the footsteps of my good friend president Jimmy Carter and use the center to build bridges of understanding between people of different regions, races, religions and sexual orientations.

What we need is more understanding, more unity, not more condemnation and divisiveness.

Here is to a bright future for all of us. And make sure you visit the library. It's open to the public. Take care and have a good day.
