January 20th 2009, the day most Americans and most nations global-wide have been waiting for, for a very long time.
January 20th 2009 found us somewhere between Montevideo, Uruguay and The Falkland Islands on the Star Princess carrying over 3,000 passengers and crew.
By 1:30 Atlantic Time, 10:30 Eastern Time, every lounge and bar outfitted with a TV was packed to SRO.
How many times in any of our life times will we be sharing such a momentous event elbow to elbow with people of every nationality and every language? The lounges erupted in applause several times throughout President Obama's inaugural address; and when he finished his oath of office with, "...so help me God" the people stood giving him a virtual standing ovation.
President Obama is off to a very good beginning unifying the world's people with hope and inspiring confidence in his leadership.
