Yesterday will be etched in my memory forever - the day that the first African-American became president of the United States! I can't even begin to describe the exhilaration of witnessing it at the Mall in Washington, D.C. amongst hundreds of thousands of others. Despite the cold winds the energy of the crowd was electrifying. There really was no other place that I would have rather been (well maybe sitting up close like the politicians and dignitaries of course :-) because witnessing President Barack Obama take oath in D.C. was simply priceless.
I'm extremely tired because I just got back to NYC this morning. I have photos from the Obama exhibit, "Manifest Hope" gallery that I will share tomorrow.
Were you in D.C. or did you watch it from home, work, etc.?
