Train of Thought Lounge : Inauguration Series Pt. 1

Greetings everyone;
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Inauguration weekend. The buildup has been surreal for anyone in the DC area over the last week. Road closings, 10 degree weather, Metro delays...And much more..

In honor of this special moment in history, I'd like to bring the lounge out of its winter hibernation with a special 3 part series of American themed inspiration.

Today, I leave you with U2's The Hands that Built America from Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York. Written by film score legend Howard Shore (composer of The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, Silent of the Lambs)and Bono, the song's themes really run deep today. Now, some of you have mentioned that Obama is not Irish/European and that the movie focused on the Irish and European influences in a young US, but it does not matter. Just focus on the BIG PICTURE here and enjoy.
