Proof that we made it!  Becca on the left, and my older brother Luke

Proof that we were there! Our friend Becca on the left, and my older brother Luke in the center.

We all know that a national and international event occurred on the Washington DC Mall midday Tuesday. What needs to be remembered is that it was also very personal for many who watched from afar, but especially for those who were present. We were immediate witnesses to history. We were part of the backdrop for the Inauguration of the first African-American President – very few nations have the faith in their democratic system to elect a person who represents such a small portion of the population. But
President Obama is more than that; he represents all of us, and we elected him not because what he looks like or where he came from, but because he offers the best chance for meaningful change. American elected the candidate they believed represented hope and new ideas; A New Beginning for America. The crowd that you see in these pictures was radiating this sensation of optimism and faith that these new ideas can be carried out under the leadership of President Obama.
