Every so often, we get to do more than just watch the making of history, we get to actually "feel" it. I remembered the "feeling" of awe when watching the the first moon landing in 1969. I remembered the "feeling" of dread watching the second plane crashed into the World Trade Center in 2001. And I will remember yesterday's feeling of inspiration while listening to President Obama's inauguration speech.
