    Amanda Gorman, wow! That was amazing. I had never heard of her, but now want to know more.

    And a general woo-HOO! So glad I have made it to this day. I would say "we", but of course there are those who did not make it.

    And he managed to put it all together while being harrassed and maligned by his predecessor. Here's to hoping that the next 4 years are super boring and void of constant tweeting from the President's office.

    Lady Gaga was incredible. I don’t think I ever heard the National Anthem sound so triumphant. Amanda Gorman was also amazing, such a talent.

    I missed Amanda Gorman! I almost completely forgot that DS3 had a telehealth appointment this morning at 9:00. Thank goodness for texts! I did get to hear Lady Gaga and I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't know she could sing like that. I loved how the anthem sounded both fresh and totally traditional at the same time.
