About 2 million people gathered in Washington, D.C., to be a part of history, and Jon joined the crowd watching the inauguration from the National Mall. "To me, this is what it was all about, and what I enjoyed after the ceremony was the walk home and reliving the moments with the people from all over the world," he says. "For every picture people took with me, I took 10 with other people. I really felt a part of that connection."
