Yesterday was the pre-inauguration, on the even of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Celebrities, politicians, and every day people were welcome to join President Elect Obama and his family celebrate on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Although I was very sad that I wasn't in the city anymore to enjoy the amazing celebration, I was able to watch the concert on HBO.
What a wonderful site to see so many people celebrating a politician and this amazing achievement. The truth of the situation is Obama isn't just the change we needed in America, but he inspires each citizen to be the change in their own lives. I couldn't be more excited for the inauguration tomorrow. Here are a few pictures for the free concert and a link to the text from President Elect Obama's speech.
