A day to remember forever…

Posted by sweens on January 20, 2009

January 20th, 2009 will certainly be remembered as a historic day as Barack Hussein Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States.  President Obama delivered a powerful speech addressing many of the issues facing the United States and the world during this difficult time. 




“Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time, But know this, America — they will be met.”


As many as 2 million people were supposed to show up in the area between Capital, the White House and the Lincoln Memorial.  Having caught a glimpse of this sight on TV it was truly amazing.  Best of luck to the new President of the USA and hopefully he can turn things around for them.
