For today’s post I am going to only write a few words, mainly due my belief that this should not be a United States centric blog. I do feel that it is important to say a few words as the inauguration of the President of the United States marks the continuation of the longest running democratically and peaceful handing of power from one leader to another the world has seen.

Originally the inauguration was March 4th and in 1933 changed to the present date, though it is not an official holiday. The most important aspect of the ceremony is the swearing in of the new president, which has been done almost exclusively by the Chief Justice of the United States.

I am sure there are very few people in the world who do not know that the new president will be taking office today, many will see the ceramony itself or at least parts of it, so will not go into detail.
