While our classmates took centered positions in the Orange and Green sections, Lauren, Jill and I found ourselves in the Blue section, in front and just left of the Capitol’s center. Here’s a glimpse of our view of the inauguration:
Rev. gives the benediction.
Chief Justice Roberts administers the oath of office to President Obama.
8 a.m. view of the seated section – reserved for special veterans.
Obama’s inaugural address.
Obama delivers his inaugural address!
We took a break from standing to sit for a while!
Watching the sunrise.
We took our places at 7 a.m. on the left side of the Capitol.
