Talk about staying on message…
I had the privilege of joining 2 million other Americans on the National Mall yesterday to watch the swearing in of Barack Obama as our 44th President.
My son I rode our bicycles to the mall and stood in the shadow of the Washington Monument for almost 3 hours in 20 degree temperatures to witness history.
By now, most of you have read, watched, and/or listened to the inaugural address. Fast forward to 12:30 a.m. at Union Station and President Obama and the First Lady show up.
While they both looked a little tired, his message was very consistent with the inaugural speech and the other public statements. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work. Government has a role, but it’s up to individuals to get involved and not wait for government to come up with all of the answers.
Add in a little James Taylor as the opening act for the new President at this event and you could say it was a great day.
What did you think of the messages from the speech and other first day events?
