“I want to take a look one more time… I’ll never see this again.” – President Obama, 2013 Inaugural [C-SPAN]


IT WAS a moment you couldn’t miss. I tweeted it as it happened.

A moment when President Obama stopped to take a last look at what he’d never see again. Savoring the Inaugural moment.

I found it quite touching, a personal instant to absorb his own wonder at the presidential privilege he was living for the last time.

Taking a moment for himself, while history swirled around him, to mark it in his mind.

It was one of those private instances where a very public man shared exactly what he was feeling in the moment. It was unmistakable. If you looked quickly, you could share it, too.
