It’s Inauguration Day!

Today is Inauguration Day in the US. Our president Barack Obama will be sworn in for his second term today. OK, so technically he was sworn in yesterday, but today is the public inauguration.

It's a national celebration!

It’s a national celebration!

 

Today is also Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It’s a day to celebrate the life of a man as well as a movement he personifies.

It’s an important day today, for both the US and the world.

Congratulations Mr. President!

  6. I did’nt know it was Inaugration day, ( not being in the US). don’t know if its a public holiday or anything, but I do know Martin Luther King was a great man, and anything done to keep his values alive always gets my support

  9. We will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day in honor of equal treatment for black dogs and cats as they are still so often discriminated against. As for the inauguration, I will take a nap, we are not fans of politics in our house…just a bunch of clowns and actors making lots of money and going nothing at the expense of my dog treat supply.

  10. Quite the confluence (VBP) of events and history. Glad you are celebrating Rumpy. Me too!

  11. Our local newspaper publishes a different one of MLK Jr.’s speeches each birthday. I was only a toddler when he was killed but his words about race, poverty, and equality ring as true as ever.

    I’d like to think, that as much as we still need to accomplish, he’d be pleased to see how far we’ve come.

  20. Our mom dreads these days, and especially ones when people march on Washington. Living outside of DC, it disrupts everything and the traffic (which is very bad to start with) becomes horrendous. But, good wishes today to all. Its over until 4 years from now.

  22. I am a TV news junkie all day long and read TIME and US NEWS since I was 15 but not anymore. First time I did not watch something like this. Am I a cynic now because all seems out and beyond control of everyday citizens ? I’ve lost interest.
