Inauguration Day 2013
Four years ago I watched the first inauguration of President Obama from the Teach for America offices. Someone had set up one of the conference rooms to stream the ceremony over the web.
About 100 people from our floor packed into the room to watch the historic event.
Now, four years later, my wife and I are watching Obama's second inauguration form our home — just the two of us and our dog. The mood at home might be a bit more subdued, but the excitement and feeling of history in the making is still there as we watched.
Sure, I get excited on Election Day, it is one of the greatest holiday. But I think Inauguration Day might be a close second.
