Goofynina and Epoman - Gone But Not Forgotten

The things that stand out for me are:
the speech, especiallly the line " we will reach our hands to you if you will unclench your fist" (or something like that)
the invocation and the closing prayer
Obama's gracious treatment of the 43rd President, walking with him to the helicopter.
THE CROWDS!!!! (even on Time Square!)
All the former presidents - they all looked so well!
the beautiful Obama girls (all three of them!)

"To be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own ...but that which is based on faith"

I LOVE  my IHD family! :grouphug;
