A New Day in America

Today was an amazing day. Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. I am proud, hopeful, and excited.

I watched President Obama walk during the inaugural parade and was scared out of my mind that something might happen. I was hoping he would get back into the armored Cadillac. In every television image, I kept seeing the ubiquitous Secret Service GMC Yukons and I got curious as to what they contained. Thanks to YouTube, I found out.

4,000 rounds per minute. Even with this firepower, I wish he would stay in the car.
