The Celebration on the Mall
The "We Are One" celebration concert was held yesterday and was a great success. As thousands of men, women, and children gathered in between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument; the mood was upbeat and cheerful. The space by the reflecting pool began to fill first with people arriving as early as 8:30 for the concert that was scheduled to start at 2:30.Soon, the entire space between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial was filled with people waiting in the cold for a glimpse of their favorite stars and, of course, President Elect Obama.
If this is what Sunday is like, we are all wondering what it will look like on Inauguration Day!
