Millions of American gathered Tuesday in Washington DC to witness history unfold as Barack Obama, takes oath as the 44th, and the very first African-American President of America.
I watched bits and pieces of the entire Inaugural festivities, but had a chance to hear Mr. Obama’s speech. Albeit the mixed reviews of his inaugural address, I thought his speech to be very humble, bold and optimistic. It is a reflection of a trait. The kind of character, in my opinion, a president should have in the midst of a great nation under crisis.
On a lighter side, Michelle Obama was a huge hit in her Isabel Toledo gold dress. It’s authoritative and chic at the same time. Classic lines with bold color– a great compliment to Barack’s dark suit.
I share the pride and joy of Americans. But along with it, I hope for a brighter future not only for the US but also for the world as we welcome a new leader to the fold!
