The images that move me

Leaving aside all the politics and policies, these are the photos, and there are many of them, that really get me choked up at the symbolism and the power of our first African-American president.  Martin Luther King would have been 80 this week.   What this day must have meant to the survivors of the Civil Rights era!  

As usual, it is the Big Picture that has the best photo-summary of the day's events.
