What a wonderful irony, today we celebrate Martin Luther King day and tomorrow President-Elect Barack Obama will take the oath of office, assuming the title 44th President of the United States of America. Each man has found his place in history. What a wonderful thing to be alive at this time and realize history in the making. Meanwhile, George W. Bush will join the ranks of the most elite club known as the ex-presidents.
Let's take a photo journey back in time to election night 2008.
There were tears...
and there were cheers all around the world...
...for the election of the first African-American to be elected President of the United States of America.
Comeback tomorrow for Part2...
Check back all week for daily post through 1/28/09
Until next time, when we can chit-chat again!
