I had the honor and privilege to watch the 2009 Presidential Inauguration on Tuesday. The experience was one I’ll never forget: it furthered my pride for this great nation and instilled immense hope that we will overcome the hardships plaguing us right now.
Below are some pictures I took on January 20. Enjoy!
Crowds outside of Constitution Hall, with posters that said “From slavery to the presidency.”
The masses migrate toward the Washington Memorial. Notice the trash can…
Flags flying near the Washington Monument as millions prepare to witness the historical inauguration.
People on the mall watch as the 43rd President shakes hands with the 44th President.
America says goodbye to a president.
