~ Inaugural Concert at Lincoln Memorial ~

The St. Petersburg Times sent me to the Inauguration in Washington D.C. mostly to do multimedia but I also got the A-1 front of  Monday Jan. 19th’s paper. I attend the inaugural concert held at the Lincoln Memorial. In the massive crowd, I spotted a woman clutching her husband as a single tear fell down her face. The couple was intently listening to soon-to-be President Obama address the audience.  I spoke with Patricia and Chris Humphries, who have been married for 29 years,  and asked them why they were so emotional in that moment.  Chris said, “When we started dating, interracial couples were not that popular…Today is living proof that all different people can come together.” Click on the image to see a multimedia piece capturing the spirit of that day.
