I can’t believe it! The day has finally come and we are really sitting in Vancouver’s airport waiting to catch a red-eye to Washington DC. That’s right, this week J and I have the privilege of joining several million of our fellow Americans to watch President Barack Obama sworn in as the 44th president of the United States of America from the National Mall in Washington DC! It is a day that has been far too long in coming, but sure to be one of the proudest days of my life. Even now the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr are echoing in my ears. There is still much more work to be done, but this Tuesday will be one huge step forward in realizing the dream of justice and equality for all members of our society. Join me in celebrating by watching the clip below of Dr. King sharing his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbUtL_0vAJk&hl=en&fs=1]
Stay tuned for lots more pictures of the week’s events including, the swearing in of President Obama, the inaugural parade and the inagural ball J and I are attending! I still can’t believe we’re headed to DC and get to be a part of such an amazing day in America’s history. Incredible!
