Obama Shines during Inaugural Speech

American Flag - A Starburst in the Sunlight

Obama's American Flag Lapel Pin - A Starburst in the Sunlight

Thanks to television broadcasting, I felt like I was almost at the Inauguration. Wow, how the American Flag lapel pin gleamed in the sun.

And I cried. I’ve seen a lot of presidents come, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt quite this way upon seeing a new leader take office.

Hope. Such audacious hope!

    And we saw it here in Denmark too. It is one of the ‘historic moments’ of our time. Congratulations. Lets hope he and his staff will succeed and fulfill some of our wishes.

    So far I like the dude. He speaks in complete sentences. How refreshing.

    I was watching it, too, and was fascinated by the way the sunlight kept hitting his flag pin and creating the beautiful starburst effect. It must have done it a dozen times. Certainly it wasn’t something that could have been staged. Great job of capturing it!

    Maybe there is hope, not just of economic recovery and peace from all the wars, but also of a drawing together of a nation.
