“I want to take a look one more time… I’ll never see this again.” – President Obama, 2013 Inaugural [C-SPAN]
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.
Pres. Obama, as he left the ceremonies, took one final look back, taking it in, one last time, then smiled, turned and was gone. #inaug2013
