I was just curious to see if anyone was going to attend the inauguration of Barack Obama and Joe Biden on the 20th? If so, how far are you traveling to get to D.C. and what's your motivation for going. For me, i just want to be 1 of the possible 5,000,000 person crowd that migrates to the capitol to witness this historic event. The smell of change is in the air and I'm excited to see what happens in the next 4 years. Seems like the irresponsibility of government and big business are starting to destroy the established structure of things (though they will fight like hell to continue business as usual) and it's going to be interesting to see what rises from the ashes. My hope is a stronger, more tolerant and understanding America ... a more environmentally conscious America and a rebuilt reputation in the eyes of the world. Maybe I'm the eternal optimist but i think the upcoming administration is very strong and can get the ball rolling on some serious positive change.
