Hope for all

Sarah Bouker, who lives in Washington, D.C., headed down to the mall this morning to try to get a spot to view the inauguration. She says the crowds were insane - "people from the back were starting to shout 'let us in,'" she remembers - and eventually gave up and headed home to watch the inauguration on TV. But on her way back, she spotted a moving scene that "almost brought a tear to my eye." Sarah looked up and saw a man standing in the window of the John L. Young Shelter for the Homeless. He was waving an American flag and several roses. "In contrast to the crowds below he seemed quite serene," said Sarah. "But like the crowds below he was excited for the events that were going to take place." She says he was happily shouting to the people below, saying things like "change is coming" and "bless you." Sarah's iReport sums it up well: "It reminded me that this day unites not only black and white but rich and poor as we all share the same hope for a better, more unified America," she wrote.

I move to the USA from Rwanda almost 15 years ago, I have never been more inspired to strive for the good this country has to offer and to become an American citizen. God bless America!!

I'm black, I don't feel burdened by it and I don't think it's a huge responsibility. It's part of who I am. It does not define me.
