The concert of a lifetime

Here we are, with 300,000 friends at the We Are One concert at the Lincoln Memorial. We were on the left hand side of the Reflecting Pool, about half way up. We had plenty of room to dance and make fools of ourselves. It was a performance that featured star after star, but the biggest applause went for Obama.

Ricardo & Jen, before the concert. Yes, we're happy to be here, at last!

Bruce Springsteen, bringing a tear to my eye, opening the show.

Folks broadcasting U2 to their friends via cell phone.

The crowds walking up 15th Street after the show.

The crowds in front of Ebbitt (about 5 deep). It took us over 2 hours to get home.
