Witnessing History First Hand: The 2009 Presidential Inauguration

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!
