    Purple Ticket - Finally Made It



    On Sunday, 1-25-09, I finally made it to the purple section of the US Capital to witness the swearing in of President Obama. Sadly, the actual swearing in took place five days earlier on 1-20-09, while I and thousands of others stood in understaffed security lines and missed it all. We had tickets, we came early, we printed off the map showing where PIC wanted us to be, but in spite of us doing everything we were asked, we missed history being made.



    I hope at some point the real truth is revealed, but right now the powers that be are too busy pointing fingers.
