In my search for Youtube video of Obama’s inagural concert at the Lincoln Memorial, I stumbled upon this video.

Bruce Springsteen was joined on stage by Pete Seeger to sing Woody Guthrie’s classic “This Land is Your Land.” The crowd sings along. Imagine, hundreds of thousands of people all gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial celebrating the nation’s first African-American president by singing a song by one of America’s most beloved folksingers, and accompanied by one of Guthrie’s personal friends, the 89-year old Pete Seeger.  It is moments like this that makes me proud to be an American.
