Here's what history looked like through the lens of the AP photographer ...
And here's what it looked like this morning at All Saints Church in Pasadena!
The cheering crowd numbered in the hundreds ... folks from the parish and the community-at-large who made their way to the All Saints Forum ...
. ... that settled in to watch on the "big screen" a moment in some ways too-big-for words!
For this little, it was chance to get pictures in the baby book that said "you were THERE sweetie!" when he's old enough to understand what happened on January 20, 2009.
Much more to say, to ponder, to celebrate ... but for the MOMENT it's "back to work we go" as the regular business of a busy parish Tuesday takes back over my calendar.
