One of the most iconic events I've ever seen was in Selma, Alabama 5 years ago.

I was watching the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday on tv. All the guests were assembled and waiting for our last real president to arrive. The tv camera was focused on the apex of the bridge and then, after dozens of vehicles came into view and proceeded over the bridge, the Beast carrying President Barack Obama appeared. Our first black president. Fifty years later! What an emotional sight to see!
