I hope you spent some time yesterday taking in the 2013 Inauguration.
The politics of the day don’t matter when you have a chance to witness history in the making — especially if you can share it with youth.
I viewed the event from a different perspective, taking in all the SPARKS or passions that were represented on a grand stage.
As a speech communications major, I like to watch for the speeches, the pomp and circumstance and I love a good military march from the Marine Corps Band, also known as The President’s Own.
We had the representation of music from instrumental to James Taylor, Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé. How wonderful for every age to be able to relate.
There was also the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and the solo of Alicia Olatula, during the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Think of the possibility that elementary-aged kids can see what can become of their passions. I understand that it is even available on iTunes.
There was fashion and hairstyle discussion throughout the day and I’m sure that will continue for the days ahead.
Poetry from Richard Blanco was part of the program and Blanco even used it to pay tribute to his mother’s work, to provide him the moment. How neat to see so much art and culture throughout the morning.
