lessons from America

Seeing a new dawn, a new day

A few hours ago I was standing in the Mall hugging Meghan, Lewis and Tracy and crying out “Yes we did”. We had made this long journey (in many ways), dragged ourselves out of bed at 4.30am and survived hours of standing in the freezing cold to witness this moment of history.

In little over an hour’s time I will back near Capitol Hill, for the We the People inaugural ball. So more photos, comment and stories from this amazing day will have to wait til later. But thanks to all those people who have texted, emailed and messaged me over the course of the day. It means much to me to have great friends to share these special moments with.

  1. Congratulations, Malcolm, on being present when history was made – and helping to make it!
    Your very proud Mum

  2. How lucky you were but how cold I bet! A once in a lifetime chance though hopefully twice if all goes well.
