Inauguration Day – crazy, exciting, hopeful, frustrating, inspiring, crowded, diverse, fun, COLD!

My favorite tribute:
My favorite sign:
Volunteers left Pittsburgh on a bus at midnight to come collect signatures for the Save Darfur Coalition’s Add Your Voice campaign. If you’d like to help out, visit http://www.AddYourVoice.org or text SAVEDARFUR to 313131.
The city was a mess. We were among many who did not get into our ticketed area due to the chaos and lack of direction. It was still an unbelievable experience… just hope we can enter the “new era of responsibility” and all try and do a little better next time!
