Today, as we’ve done in America many times before over the past 300 years, we ushered in a new President. The peaceful transition of power is an important piece to the government of our nation. Perhaps it was the hype over the new administration or the prevalence of coverage on the internet but I don’t ever remember following past Presidential inaugurations as closely as I did this one. It was a very interesting day and I don’t mind admitting that I totally got caught up in the spectacle of it all. Besides the actual event, I really enjoyed learning about the traditions associated with the inauguration. Regardless of your political affiliation or opinion, I hope you took the time to observe the changing of the guard today.
