Inauguration Day 2013 - President Obama

I wish I planned ahead more... if I did I would have seriously considered braving the cold and attended the inauguration of President Barack Obama's 2nd term as president.  Alas, all I did was watch the event from the warmth of my bed.

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:
