President Barack Obama was sworn in for four more years on Sunday in a ceremony at the White House. However, the public inaugural events take place Monday. That's when Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol before thousands.
Several South Mississippians will be in that crowd. A group of folks left from Moss Point and they're eager to get to the big ceremony in Washington D.C.
"I am fired up and ready to go," one person said.
You could feel the excitement in the air as the group boarded a bus.
"I just feel good and I just like going to Washington," a Jackson County resident said.
For many, this will be their first time attending the inaugural ceremony of President Barack Obama.
"I was just pretty excited to go and see him," another Jackson County resident said.
"I have been saving my money and preparing myself to go to Washington D.C. because the first time everybody went, I didn't get to go," Moss Point resident Mattie Holloway said.
Holloway made sure to stock up on a lot Obama gear.
"I went and volunteered at the democratic headquarters, so every time a new button came in I purchased it," said Holloway. "My girlfriend, who passed in July bought me this t-shirt. So my t-shirt is extra special."
Another Jackson County resident, Maranda McCorvey also had a few special pieces.
"I have a sister that lives right outside the Maryland and D.C. area, and after the inauguration she sent me this blanket," McCorvey said.
This will be her second time watching the president take the oath.
"I love to be in the crowd, and I love to be part of it," McCovery said.
Moss Point's Mayor agreed.
"This is history; the first African American President was elected four years ago. I went four years ago and I am going again this time. I feel a personal connection, and I want to be there. It may never happen again in our life time," Mayor Aneice Liddell said.
The travelers are confident this trip will be truly exhilarating.
"It is a blessing for everyone to take this trip and take this journey and be a part again of the history making moment," McCovery said.
"You come back empowered knowing that anything possible. Not just that we can have an African American, but you are able to do what you want to do great USA," Mayor Liddell said.
