A lasting memory ….I reviewed the recording of the inauguration at my sister-in-law’s, and at the end of the ceremony, as Obama was leaving, he paused at the top of the stairs and turned around, motioned to his entourage to stop and look, take in the spectacle before them. It must’ve been spectacular, thousands before them, flags waving, the ‘ground’ of people moving before them, a murmur of satisfaction and hope arising from their throats. I too took it all in -appreciative that I was a witness to it.
