I snapped this photo this morning driving in to work. The sun was rising on a new day.
And what a new day it was....
This was a photo I snapped at 6 a.m. from my TV of the crowds in front of the Capital building! Crowds of people just wanting to be there and to witness, first hand, a new era dawning. People of all ages celebrating together, people thinking about their lives past and their lives in the future. People that wanted to be part of a historical moment, the inauguration of a new President.
As Obama himself said in his inaugural address:
"Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."
Barack H. Obama, I wish you the very best.
