Your Introduction to Charlotte - the Heart of the New South©

Welcome President Obama… One Million Plus Welcome the 44th President of the United States

January 21st, 2009 Listed Under: Living Here

Last minute tickets led to a last minute trip to Washington DC and the inauguration of a President. Judy and I decided and left in 30 minutes, and you know I took my camera! The view was just OK, the atmosphere electric, the experience? (groan) Priceless!

As I think about the day, if I only had one word to describe the day on the mall- it would be Joy. Despite a crushing crowd early, despite the cold, and the long wait- we were surrounded by all kinds of people, young and old, every race, every ethnicity, and they were celebrating America.

Yes they loved Obama, but they loved what he represents more, the American ideal. For the first time African-Americans have been brought into the compact that is America.

Now, anyone can grow up to be President. Tell your children.
