Dailure: Watching the inauguration, all day, on CNN. I watched the entire program, at the University of Miami, student center on an huge TV, with 100s of students and faculty. It was so quiet when Obama gave his speech, very somber, moving but serious. It was compared to the speech given by FDR. There were miles (2) of people outside the capital, in Washington D.C. A sea of people, filled with hope of seeing the first African American president, sworn in as the forty-fourth president of the United States of America. It was amazing to see all those faces, in the frigid cold, with tears streaming down their cheeks. I wanted to be there with them.
