I was really glad that so many teachers at school allowed us to watch the live video coverage of President Obama's inauguration. It is an historical event that I'm glad I got to see live if even only on television. I thought that it was interesting how almost depressing Obama's speech was. It was by no means the uplifting, "I'm going to make these next four years great" speech that I think many inaugurations could be. It mentioned several times the crises that America faces and the need to stay strong and have faith in America. I think overall it was a good message, but not what I was expecting.
