On the road to Baltimore at the crack of dawn,we arrived at the hotel by noon. After a bit of lunch, we were off to Washington for our Inaugural dry run.
From Baltimore on Am track to DC’s Union Station, then 4 stops on the red line to the Smithsonian stop and out onto the mall and joining the electric bunches of Obama lovers.
We were there. The Capitol in front of us, Washington’s monument behind and I was feeling the exhilaration.
I was there, and even if I didn’t get back for the ceremony, I was there.
