    Great composition. At last, a voice of sanity and reason. I believe he wrote his own speech and he spoke of reality and I loved it!

    Thanks everyone. I felt driven to create something. After the oppression of spririt during the last 8 years, I felt lifted, patriotic in some odd way. Anyway, I shot a photo at a diner of the TV and the image of President Obama. I liked how the words were on the screen. From there it was just the joy of playing and alongside the play trying to figure what the inauguration might mean on a personal and more public level. I appreciate all of your comments:~O
