I woke up on Saturday morning with a foreboding feeling. The inauguration was on Friday but I refrained to watch any of the proceedings. I spent last week contemplating Obama’s presidency and the dignity, decency and intelligence the Obama’s brought to the Whitehouse. I didn’t allow my mind to wander beyond that but on Saturday morning there was no denying it, a new era had been ushered in. Like many across the nation and around the world Saturday I took my discontent to the streets in my hometown of New York. Here is a record of my day in pictures.
History was made on Saturday, not only in New York and Washington but in cities and towns around the world. People are concerned and rightfully so. The actions of our government have repercussions globally. I hope the new administration takes note.
