Inauguration Day: January 20, 2009

Some students avidly followed the entire campaign and election process.

Others limited their discussion to the classroom.

Elementary students understood that something special was happening.

And the entire school district, staff and students, witnessed history being made.

"Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations." -Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States, Inaugural Address

Definitely a memorable day! I was very mad to see that my TiVo froze and didn't record it while we were away. I was able to pull up the text of it on Scott's Blackberry, very inspiring. What we did see throughout the day was soundless but still his message rang loud and clear.
