Over 500k people came from across the nation and world to witness this momentous occasion and millions more watch on television like myself (2nd term or not still a big deal). I was proud today as an American citizen and as an African American woman. I was proud because I was able to witness not once but twice the dreams and hopes of Martin Luther King come to fruition. Happy birthday MLK!
However, I don't want to turn this blog post into my political rantings so let's look at the photos:
