The theme of the day was certainly “hidden opportunities.” Many students from The Washington Center were able to either meet or see some famous people today who were in town gearing up for the inauguration! It is extremely exciting having the opportunity to be in the capital during this event, you can feel the excitement mounting in the city, awaiting the ceremonies which will take place on Monday. The opportunities today weren’t just hidden, but publicized as well. Today is the National Day of Service. It is a day dedicated by President Obama to be a day that the nation can band together to commit service to one’s community. With all the preparation for the inauguration, as well as the day of service festivities going on, Washington is quite a fun place to be.
