I can't believe I was there!

It's late and I've had a long day--of seeing the Inauguration Welcome Concert! I seriously cannot believe I was there and could actually see the stage and hear the speeches and dance to the music. Yes, I saw Jon Bon Jovi sing with Bettye LaVette, and Usher perform with Stevie Wonder, and Garth Brooks and U2 and Tom Hanks and Jack Black, and too many others to list here.

But most amazing of all, I was there to hear Barack Obama speak to the crowd that stretched from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial all the way pas the Washington Monument and into the homes of countless more Americans. I was a little part of history today, and really, that rocks more than any music I heard.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can, but right now, I'm going to bed.
