It was fantastic to watch President Obama be sworn in (even though he totally messed that part up) and deliver a great speech (this part he did NOT mess up. Simply a wonderful speech). It is fair to say that the majority of Americans felt a great deal of pride watching from their homes today.
My good friend Dano had a completely different perspective of the whole affair. He was at the inauguration and freezed his butt off. To add to the surreal nature of the events unfolding before him, he turned and this is what he saw directly beside him:
Dwight Howard was standing beside him the whole time, like a mountain erupting out of...well...littler mountains. I asked Dano if he noticed anything worth mentioning, and he said,
"(Looking at the photos) you can't see the funniest part. As he walked by, towering over everyone, he was holding hands with this little old lady that could not have been more than 4 feet tall. He had a big smile on his face the whole time."
Truly an interesting day for us all. Hopefully Obama ushers in an age of prosperity for our nation, and hopefully that little old lady could breathe down there.
