on this day, history was made.

I’ve still got the goosebumps from watching PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s inauguration speech earlier this afternoon. And I feel privelaged to be apart of this history, even if I’m not in D.C. to watch it all unfold in person. Change is on its way and I, for one, am excited!

Speaking of being privelaged to be in D.C. for the festivities, it seems all of Hollywood has flocked to Washington for the inauguration.

Beyonce and husband Jay-Z joined the crowd at the U.S. Capitol building to watch Obama be sworn in as the 44th President. Beyonce has a busy day in front of her, as she also prepares to sing “At Last” by Etta James for the President’s first dance with his wife at tonight’s Neighborhood Ball.

Oprah, who was one of Obama’s biggest supporters during his campaign, sat front row with her longtime beau Stedman and actor Samuel L. Jackson.

Hubby and wife duo Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were in D.C. to help spread Obama’s word on public service. On Monday, the couple  traveled to a local school and appeared on Oprah to talk about their new campaign to pledge your commitement to public service. And what did this celeb couple say their pledge was? To stop modern day slavery around the world.

So, I’m curious. What do you guys think about Obama’s speech and the other events of the day?
