Quite an Epic Day

Yesterday’s inauguration was about more than Obama’s presidency.  The country came together to close the door on years of political partisanship, and to remind ourselves once again that it is the American people that make the country great.  It is the joining together of individuals from all over the country and from diverse backgrounds and ways of life from which this country draws its strength. 

A token of that unity is the CNN image taken by the GeoEye satellite of between one and two million people on the national mall to observe this inauguration, despite hours of security checks and frigid cold weather.
