A nugget from today’s inauguration sent by Indy staffer Matt Saldaña:

Norma Gabriel Taylor, 65, and Carolyn King Samoa, 50, are cousins who traveled from the Bay Area with members of three generations of their family, including Samoa’s 85-year-old father. ‘It’s just history. It’s so overwhelming. I thought to myself, ‘We’re coming here with pieces of people we lost,” Taylor said.

On the night of Obama’s nomination, at the Democratic National Convention in late August,
Taylor said it was the first time she realized ‘all that I had been hoping for would come true. You just get a feeling within yourself, When is change going to happen? And that’s what he was talking about-real change. I think there will be change.”
