Wow...what a wonderful experience in D.C! It was incredibly overwhelming at times - in a good way! I was so excited to be a part of U.S. History, something that I will pass on to my own family, friends and students for generations to come. You will all have the opportunity to share my moment via a DVD that I will compile from both the Chicago Rally and from the latest - the Inauguration. Once there and experiencing everything, I really wished that I could have taken you with me, but the DVD will have to suffice. I did return to Chicago today and am excited to answer your posts during classroom discussions! I will see you all tomorrow! Thanks for blogging! We'll have more opportunities in the future!
