“Let’s have a ball!,” said Suzy Kjellberg, and opened the ceremonies with these words;
“The palate of our nation has been forever changed. With the election of Barack Obama and the appointments of his amazing cabinet, the landscape of our children’s future is being painted in the colors of a new freedom. Light is being cast in front of us as we march forward in a procession of possibility, opportunity and fundamental change. Welcome to Our Inaugural Ball! Let the party begin!”
We have a DVD of the “We are One” Concert on January 18th – please come in and be inspired. It’s wonderful.
