Where I'm standing we're getting a short echo. It has a nice reverberating rhythm ... Linking past and present.

8:30 a.m. Just caught a glimpse of Maya, sister of Obama.

8:22 a.m. (Pacific) At the base of the monument. Tried to push forward but couldn't see a thing. Frozen fingers, teary eyes, warm heart.
