We watched President Obama's inauguration at teatime here in the UK - I made my kids sit and watch history being made.
A normally incredibly composed man stumbled over his oath showing an endearing human side to his usually polished exterior
But the most moving part for me was explaining the significance of all this to my children
As a 1960 baby I can only slightly remember the notable events of the 1960s
But I am still overawed at how far things have come in 40+ years
Long may that progress continue
A truly momentous day
