“I will never forget how I felt on January 20, 2009. It was a historic day and truly shows what this country is all about. As a young boy who grew up in the 50′s and 60′s, I never could have imagined America electing an African American president. In my childhood, segregation between blacks and whites still existed. Now, just 50 years later, we witnessed an African American become the nation’s 44th President. As an African America, this makes me feel proud. But as a citizen of America, this makes me feel even prouder. The steps this nation has taken in half a century are enormous and provide great hope for the future. Anyways, the reason I am so excited to write about this is because I was at the inauguration.
The moment President Obama was elected; I immediately began looking up flights to Washington D.C. The trip was going to cost me around $1,000, and I didn’t have the money to afford this. I was determined to find a way to get to D.C. and watch the event- television coverage just wouldn’t do it. I needed to witness history. I found Orlando Title Loans online and filled out an application. They got me cash the very same day, and I booked my flight and hotel.
The trip was incredible. Everyone was proud to be an American that day. There were times where people were cheering so loud that you could not hear the person next to you. The atmosphere was filled with excitement and hope. And here we go again. Four years later. My views on President Obama and his politics have not been altered. I do hope he wins these elections as well. Change is coming to America and everyone is embracing it. I just want to send my thanks to Orlando auto equity loans guys for helping me get the money I needed to attend the inauguration. I will not hesitate to call them again this year.”
