Obama's Inauguration

Monterey Beach, California.  October 2008.

What an amazing time--we just inaugurated our first black president for his second term, and in his inauguration speech he proclaimed that everyone, gays included, should have equal rights.  We have a long way to go, but we're inching along.
"It is now our generation's task to carry on what those pioneers began.  For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.  Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law - for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."  - from Obama's inauguration speech.

So, in honor of the inauguration, a few photos from my vast collection...
