President Obama Hands Reins To President Trump

"January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again."

 That was part of the message of President Trump's inauguration speech yesterday. While there were some protests and violence, the day in Washington was one of a celebratory mood. 

 One local resident, Alexis Duhon, attended the ceremony according to the Journal Star. She was particularly moved by President Trump's call for patriotism.  "At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice."
