Crowds Gather In Louisville To Watch Inauguration

More than 100 people gathered in a ballroom at the Henry Clay Building in downtown Louisville to watch the television coverage of the presidential inauguration.

Among them was Sheila Boyd of Louisville, who said she was impressed with the new president’s inaugural address.

“It was almost like I expected him to touch every bit of the issues……people’s health, people being out of a job, people’s security. I think that all the things that we’ve looked forward in him has been the focus of his attention.”

Boyd, who moved to Louisville from Indianapolis about five years ago, says she plans to heed President Obama’s call to volunteer her time to help others.
