Sources: Organizers Considering 'Day of Service'
Amid the talk of superstars and throngs of visitors and hotel rooms costing zillions for the Barack Obama inauguration, there is also thought among organizers of having some kind of "day of service" on January 19th, which is the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and the day before President-elect Obama is sworn in.
Nothing has been decided yet, according to sources familiar with the discussions, but the idea would be to set a more serious tone of giving back to the country in the midst of the dire economic times. We're told that could be something that people could participate in from coast to coast--not just those present for the swearing-in ceremonies in Washington.
Stay tuned to Inauguration Watch for more details.
