Inauguration

Tuesday, January 20th 2009 by Pat

I went to the Obama inauguration at Centennial Hall this morning. I’ve never seen so many relieved, happy, and hopeful people gathered together to celebrate our country. I can think of countless times I’ve been proud to be Alaskan but I think this morning was the first time – in a long time – that I’ve felt a pride and purpose in being American. It was beautiful.

As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.

Barack Obama, Inaugural Address

Thank you to the Juneau World Affairs Council for hosting the event and to everyone who attended and filled the moment with so much meaning.
