Braving the cold, the wind-chill and the crowds, thousands of families brought their children to bear witness to Barack Obama’s inauguration.
This is one of my favorite photos. Not only do I love the transparency of the flags with the sun behind them (especially the American flags with President Obama’s face on them) but I love the symbolism of the child uplifted from the crowd.
And that kid is also totally rocking the Spider-Man mask.
