EA22FCCEE89F6F36BB2ADE7324A8Come on let’s celebrate and have a good time …

The old song reverberates in my mind. But rarely does it apply as much as it does today.

The Inauguration.

Of course.

The weekend long celebration of the Inaguration of the President and Vice-President here in the United States.

We celebrate. The world celebrates … well some of it. And I am in awe of it all.

The 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation … Martin Luther King Day … and Inauguration. All standing for the same thing.

Freedom … equality for all men … and women.

Between the taking of the Oath, the Parades, the Speeches, the Dancing, the Singing and all the Celebration … there was one moment that really stood out to me.

Al Roker.

Yes, Al Roker … the Weatherman.

Al Roker … who years ago lost a great great deal of weight so he would be alive when his infant daughter grew up.

Al Roker … who was teased about how he should get an interview with the President.

Al Roker … who was standing out in the freezing cold covering the Parade.

He got it.

The first post-inaugural interview with the President. About the weather.

Let’s hear it for the little guy …
