Today has been a very historic day since the 44th president of the United States was inaugurated in Washington, DC.
Not only was this day important because of the inauguration but also because Barack Obama is the first African-American man to be elected president of this country.
The inauguration celebration started very early in the capital city and lasted all day long. It included speeches, parades and ball dances. Although some people argue that the celebration was too lavish for the hard financial times...it was very fun to watch and very inspiring as well.
Congratulations to our new president. We are looking forward to what you have to offer to our country!
