First, I apologize for not posting as soon as I left the National Mall on the day of the Inauguration. I was sooooo cold, that it took me a few days just to recover. But, it was all worth it. I can honestly say, without a shadow of a doubt, for the first time in MY life, I was proud to be an American. I mean, so much so that I can actually see myself hanging a flag outside my home. In all my 35 years, the THOUGHT of doing such, had never even crossed my mind.
The one thing that I will always remember is how quiet all 2million us were as we waited for President Obama to be introduced. You could have heard a pin drop. This picture is from my vantage point in the SILVER ticket area, behind the reflecting pool, which was frozen. Yeah ... frozen. It was that cold outside.
I am excited and I am praying for wisdom, humility and safety for President Obama and the First Family. - bw
