Inauguration Day has so much significance to so many people, it's no wonder that everyone has their own favorite moment. "I really wanted to walk home, to be able to say, 'Did I really just see what I saw and live what I lived?''" Jon says. "That was really special."

Forest says that his own favorite moments came during President Obama's speech. "It's the moments between the lines. I think when I was listening to him speak, the words were so powerful I wanted to embrace the time that I had to even experience what he just said," he says. "So it's the breaths between that I wanted so badly to sit still with, because I was overwhelmed by his inclusion of everyone."
