Obama Inauguration at WMU

Historic.

Driving down to Kalamazoo Tuesday morning, it was evident that adjectives were failing across the country. On the radio, commentators struggled to find different ways to define the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president.

Here's a few shots from Western Michigan's Miller Auditorium where students, faculty and the Kalamazoo community gathered to watch the ceremony.

Epic.
Hope.
Celebration.

This is a "where were you when?" moment and will long be remembered. My list of "where were you when?" includes:
1. You heard the news of the JFK assassination
2. Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby
3. Men first landed on the moon (I am a believer)
4. Airliners hit the World Trade Center on 9/11
5 Cubs won the World Series
