Air and Simple Gifts

I didn't know exactly what to write about this inspiring moment from today's inauguration. One of the comments about it left on YouTube did it for me:

When I heard Yo-Yo Ma was in it, I knew it was going to be good.
When I heard Itzhak was in it, I sat up a little bit straighter.
And when I heard it was arranged by John Williams,
in those 5 minutes,
you could not have done anything
to take my eyes away.




If seems that when we as a people gather at an important event, music becomes not only a important element but an element long remembered after the event is over. For my entire adult life, John Williams has brought us music that has entertained, inspired, and moved emotions. Today was certainly no exception.
