On November 4, 2008,
a man, unlike predecessors before him,
walks to a podium in Chicago
to address a nation
with his acceptance speech.

In a shine of tears, some remember:
falling stock market
housing market
credit crisis

The President-elect walks on stage
with his wife and two daughters.

There’s a lot to accomplish
as Barack Obama and his family
prepare to move into the White House.

—Ann Inoshita
