Tanya J. Tyler is a Disciples of Christ pastor in Kentucky. She works for the Lexington Herald Leader and is a contributing writer for DisciplesWorld. She is part of the Bluegrass Moms blog, and took a bus trip to DC for the inauguration.

Among the sights and sounds: an unexpectedly moving trip to the Vietnam War Memorial, the crowded Metro, high-fiving strangers, almost throwing up on a woman’s fur coat (not a PETA statement), and conversations about super powers and port-a-potties.

Tyler concludes:

I have waited so long for this day … I don’t want it to be over. And if we listen to our new president’s message and get out and work together to make this country everything it can and should be, it won’t be over. Ever.
