Humanity and hope at the Inauguration

As promised, I have a few photos of the sea of people attending the inauguration.  An amazing thing it was to have 2 million people pushing through streets, tunnels, unsure where they were to go, cold;  wheelchairs, crutches, old, and the very young in slings around their fathers chest.  There is not much I can say that you have not seen or heard on polished news casts.  Something you may not have heard:  Many there in the crowds did not make it to the mall and missed the event due to volumn limits.  Here are a few shots from my perspective.

Humanity at the Inauguration

At the height of WWII, Winston Churchill was asked if he wanted to cut costs by scrapping the arts program.

“My God … my God … NO. What have we been fighting for?”

The human spirit lives through our art and the humanities. 

The District of Columbia is bustling in preparation for a visit of millions of citizens.  I will be there hoping to catch a few interesting images of humanity.  If all goes well, they will be posted as soon as I get back.    Stay toastie –
